Ellen Gustafson - We the Eaters

Port Commission Hearing Room, second floor of the Ferry Building (Embarcadero at Market St., San Francisco)

The talk will be followed by a reception with book signing and farmers market refreshments. The event is open to the public and space is first-come-first-served. A $5 donation will be requested at the door. 

The implausible truth: roughly a billion people in the world are hungry and more than a billion are overweight. Far from complete opposites, hunger and obesity are different manifestations of the same problem: it’s increasingly difficult to find and eat nutritious food. Solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges—from hunger to healthcare costs, from corruption to cancer, from terrorism to type 2 diabetes—are right under our noses, literally embedded in the food we put on our plates.

In her new book, We the Eaters: If We Change Dinner, We Can Change the World, author Ellen Gustafson—a young social entrepreneur, foreign policy maven, and food policy advocate—outlines the root causes of this dichotomy. She provides a blueprint of actionable solutions—solutions that could start with changing out just a single item on your plate.

Join CUESA for a talk with this impassioned and articulate author, and hear about how we can love our food and our country while being better stewards of our food system and our health.

Ellen Gustafson is a sustainable food systems activist and social entrepreneur. She lectures around the world on global food issues and is the cofounder of Food Tank: The Food Think Tank and founder of the Apron Project. The cofounder of FEED Projects and the FEED Foundation, which have provided more than 60 million school meals to children in need, Gustafson has also worked at the U.N. World Food Program, ABC News, and the Council on Foreign Relations.
