Event Description and Details

Our food choices have profound impact on ourselves, animals, and the planet. Many of us aspire to live compassionately and to practice nonviolence, while unwittingly causing enormous suffering and destruction through our daily food choices. It doesn’t have to be that way. We can change the world by changing our food.

Reception will follow the lecture and dialogue with attendees.
