“Ethical Eating” with Tracy Van Quaethem
The UUA calls for ethical eating–“to choose foods that minimize harm and are protective of the environment, consumers, farmers, and all those involved in food production and distribution.” As we’ve become separated from the production of our food, we’ve sometimes assumed that the F.D.A. protects food and its production. It’s not that simple. Tracy Van Quaethem—an “urban vegetable cultivator,” a teacher using food ethics as a research focus, and All Souls Green Sanctuary Committee chair—will discuss some of the practical applications of ethical eating.
