As you know, NWEI launched it’s newest discussion course, Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics and Sustainability, this month and we are thrilled to see the response thus far! We are also excited to offer course organizers a free copy of the new guide when organizing your group this Fall. Place your group’s order before November 15th by calling us and simply mention this blog post and we’ll send you a free copy of the guide along with your group’s books. (*Please note: you must place your order for your group in order to receive your free copy.) We hope you’ll join the hundreds of others who are getting ready to sit down and dig deep into how to make more sustainable and ethical food choices.

Hungry for Change: Food, Ethics and Sustainability explores the true meaning of the phrase “you are what you eat.” In four to six sessions, this discussion course challenges participants to examine their roles, not only as consumers of food, but also as creators — of food, of systems, and of the world we all live in. Each session includes readings, short assignments and accompanying discussion questions that address the impact of individual food choices on a range of issues, including ecosystem health, the treatment of factory and farm workers, and the global economy. Many sessions also include video clips, podcasts and websites to deepen the learning experience. Hungry for Change helps participants commit to lasting change by developing and sharing personal Action Plans with each session.
