Robyn O'Brien on Fixing the Food System
When food analyst turned activist Robyn O’Brien was feeding breakfast to her four kids, one of them had a severe allergic reaction which caused her alarm. She went on a mission to better understand our food system and, in so doing, discovered she wanted to fix it. Called “food’s Erin Brockovich,” we spoke with O’Brien about the current and evolving state of food manufacturing in the US and her role in bringing awareness and change to it. We also hear from Matthew Dillon whose own experience with the food system has been an inspiration to Robyn and her movement.
