    395. Facing the Politics of Our Food System Head On

    Following a sneak peek screening of the new Food, Inc. 2, Dani sat down with Michael Pollan of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Marion Nestle of Food Politics, and the filmmakers Robert Kenner and Melissa Robledo. They discuss the biggest changes they have observed since the release of Food, Inc. in 2008, the hold that multinational corporations have on the U.S. government, and whether guiding eaters toward different choices is enough to drive the food systems change we want to see. In Food, Inc. 2, the sequel to the Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-award winning documentary, Food, Inc., filmmakers Robert Kenner and Melissa Robledo reunite with investigative authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser to take a fresh look at our efficient yet vulnerable food system. This conversation, hosted by Food Tank, Participant, River Road, and NYU Steinhardt, was part of Food Tank’s NYC Climate Week programming that positioned food and agriculture systems as a solution to the climate crisis.
