Phil Lempert’s Food Sense

Over 100 years ago president Teddy Roosevelt warned of the impending threat to our future prosperity wrought by failure to keep a check on our appetites. With the world population growing at an alarming rate and a new major "food" catastrophe every few weeks, becoming an educated food consumer has never been more important. Phil Lempert's Food Sense, a one-hour Public Television special, introduces and discusses the need to understand "sustainability" and the impact on our food world. Viewers will join Phil at the breakfast table, a feast including coffee, eggs, bacon, orange juice, bread, butter and potatoes and then follow him as he traces the path of these foods from source to table; discussing the differences and impact each food selection makes on an overall sustainable food supply. Food Sense helps consumers understand what they are eating and why -- from a health, nutrition, taste, value and sustainability perspective.
