What we choose to eat affects everything.

However, our current food system is unhealthy and unsustainable, leaving us with options that pollute our air and water, consume large amounts of energy, and contribute to chronic disease and premature death, all while leaving millions undernourished.

Transitioning away from an animal-based system to a plant-based system, for example, has numerous social, environmental, economic, and individual health benefits.

#SaludTues Plant Based Food SystemsLet’s use #SaludTues on January 28, 2020, to tweet about how you can raise awareness about and push for policies to support healthy food systems.
