Joining host Jenna Liut today to discuss the importance of addressing sustainability issues in our food system is Bob Martin, the Director of the Food System Policy program at Johns Hopkin’s Center for a Livable Future (CFF), which recently commissioned a national survey of American voters to determine public support for food sustainability. Among other key findings, the results demonstrated that 74% of adults believe the newly released Dietary Guidelines should include environmental provisions and support sustainable agriculture practices. On the show, Jenna and Bob unpack the significance of these finds, discuss the survey’s repercussions, and offer suggestions for consumers interested in affecting change in our food system.
“The stunning thing, for me, is how much food issues are ignored just generally, politically. You don’t hear any of the presidential candidates talking about it.” [20:25] – Bob Martin
