TIME Logo Brian Halweil TEDxManhattan Changing the Way We Eat vegetablesAn article in today’s TIME magazine highlights featured speakers from this weekend’s TEDxManhattan “Changing the Way We Eat” conference, including Nourishing the Planet’s co-Project Director Brian Halweil.

The article discusses how the food movement is increasingly addressing environmental issues and maintains that a growing variety of stakeholders, from business and corporations, policymakers, and health practitioners, to farmers, chefs, and restaurateurs,  are now finding a common cause in food. As the movement gains momentum, with the right organization, backing, and energy,  it could be a strong vehicle in tackling hunger, poverty, and a changing climate, some of the world’s greatest challenges.
