  • Food Politics Meeting

    October 19, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
    https://meet.google.com/ioc-atgf-jxb

    JOIN US for the LWVSPA Food Politics (FKA Plant Power) Action Team.

    This year, our primary goals are to educate people about the impact of their food choices on the corrupting influence of money in politics, personal health and environmental impacts; to find like-minded people and organizations, to empower individuals to take personal action, and perhaps most importantly, to have fun and eat good food. In this meeting we will develop our action plan, talk about our budget and get started!

    Please RSVP to Julie Kessel at Julie.Kessel@Cigna.com so we can make sure we have enough space and healthy snacks!

    You may not know this, but this is a BIG DEMOCRACY issue!
    Food and politics are good ole’ buddies.

    Think about this…
    The healthcare and pharma lobbies want you to think that drugs and devices are the answer to your medical woes
    The energy lobby wants you to think that they are for renewable sources of energy
    The Agribusiness lobby wants you to think they are for sustainable farming and humane animal consumption
    .
    And they pay a LOT of special interest money to keep you thinking you have limited personal power to take control of your health, carbon footprint, and environment.
