How can we feed the world—today and tomorrow?

The biggest players in the food industry—from pesticide pushers to fertilizer makers to food processors and manufacturers—spend billions of dollars every year not selling food, but selling the idea that we need their products to feed the world.

But, do we really need industrial agriculture to feed the world?

Can sustainably grown food deliver the quantity and quality we need—today and in the future?

These are the kinds of questions addressed in this short 7 minute mythbuster film on the food we eat and the impact of the corporate agriculture industry. It’s from the first program of the Real Food Media Project, a collaborative initiative to inspire, educate, and grow the movement for sustainable food and farming across the United States.

While it may have a US focus, as ever, “big business” impacts on more than just American shores. For more information see http://foodmyths.org or our section on hunger.
