Environmental Justice Speakers Series presents Why Food Sustainability Matters

Agribusiness and the meat industry have become increasingly driven purely by profit without regard to the effect it has on our health or the environment. We cannot continue down this destructive path. Learn why food sustainability matters and is one of the most important issues of today as we discuss solutions that are currently being practiced in the community.
