Eating Planet


 Eating Planet 2012–Nutrition Today: A Challenge for Mankind and for the Planet

At the end of 2011, Nourishing the Planet collaborated with the Barilla Center for Food & Nutrition to publish Eating Planet–Nutrition Today: A Challenge for Mankind and for the Planet. The book looks at the paradoxes of the global food system, the cultural value of food, production and consumption trends, and the effects of individual eating habits on health and on the environment. According to the report, the most pressing problems in today’s agricultural system are a lack of access to nutritious foods, enormous amounts of food waste, environmental degradation, and a lack of interest in agriculture among the next generation. In a review, The Guardian referred to it as a “useful resource that focuses on important issues confronting humanity: food production and availability.” The book was released on Earth Day (April 22, 2012).
