The Kind of Spokesperson the World Needs

Wayne Roberts is my new hero. I haven't yet read his book, 'The No-Nonsense Guide to World Food', but I have devoured his website: www.wayneroberts.ca. He tackles serious food issues and still makes his audience laugh - Wayne is just the kind of spokesperson the world needs. When talking about the number of meals per day that people across the globe eat, he says,
"We have 20 billion chances a day to in the world to do something good with the planet or 20 billion chances to do something that's not good by the planet, and that's our choice."
Quite right. Each of us has the power to change what we don't like about our food system every time we eat. Watch the rest of this short (5 minute) video to hear more of Wayne Robert's thoughts on food:
