Our Food Systems—Are You Hungry for Change?

Our Food Systems—Are You Hungry for Change?
The National Film Board of Canada (NFB), the David Suzuki Foundation (DSF) and Humber College invited Canadian students to get together—virtually—and talk about the impact that modern food systems might be having on our health, land and food security.

Environmentalist and broadcaster Dr. David Suzuki was joined by J.B. MacKinnon, Utcha Sawyers, and Tanya Davis, whose compelling poem appears in the NFB film Island Green, a look at conventional and organic farming on Prince Edward Island.

Co-hosted by the NFB, DSF and Humber College, this 90-minute special event was geared towards high school seniors, student groups and college and university classes.


Dr. David Suzuki, environmentalist, J.B. MacKinnon, co-author of Canadian bestseller The 100-Mile Diet, Utcha Sawyers, Food Share Toronto and special guest: Tanya Davis, poet.
