President & CEO, Partnership for a Healthier America
America’s Broken Food Culture and What to Do About It
Thursday March 9, at 1:30 at The Gathering Place
We know that eating well and exercise are keys to healthy and happy living. Yet America’s food culture makes it hard to eat what we know we should. The default food culture is ultra-processed carbohydrates with lots of added sugar and salt, especially in underserved communities. This fall the administration convened the White House Conference on Hunger, Health, and Nutrition with an aim to begin the hard work of fixing our broken food culture. Nancy will discuss how we got here and how we can fix this problem.
Nancy Roman, who recently retired to Fearrington, is a national expert on the topic of food cultures. Her career has also included leading the United Nations World Food Program, and one of the country’s largest food banks.
