New Film Looks at Link Between Hunger and Climate Change

Walmart Produce Aisle

The group WHY Hunger just released a new short film called “The Food and Climate Connection: From Heating the Planet to Healing It.” The film looks not only at how climate change has impacted food production but at at how food impacts climate change.

From farming to processing to packaging and shipping, our food system accounts for 1/3 of global greenhouse gas emissions. This film is aimed at empowering folks to take control of their food.

Here’s the 10 minute film:


My favorite quote from the trailer is this one from Christina Schiavoni from WHY Hunger:

Something incredibly hopeful is that communities all over the world are resisting and are showing that there is another way forward. Those of us who are involved in food system change and food justice need o recognize that we have the solutions. Agribusiness doesn’t have the solutions. Corporations don’t have the solutions. We have them.

I really like the positive note that the film leaves you with. So empowering! You can learn more about how to take control of our food supply on the WHY Hunger website.
