You may have heard of a little thing called climate change… global warming… or as Thomas Friedman likes to call it, global weirding. Yes, we are doing some pretty crazy damage to our beloved mother earth, and we have to do something about it. So here’s your chance.
This Sunday, Foodstand will join the largest Climate March in history on the streets of Manhattan to show the world its world leaders (who conveniently are in town for the UN summit on the climate crisis) that we need to work together to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. Why? Not only we believe climate change is a real thing, but also because one of the largest contributors to climate change is our food system. Oh, and one of the largest threats to our food system is climate change.
Funny how that works.
So, that means WE as food lovers need to (and CAN!) do something about it so we can continue to nosh on our favorites. So what is that “something,” you ask?
March with us!
