Everyone who cares about food has seen this speech already, but I finally got around to watching it and I’m so glad I did. His speech is powerful, informative, and inspiring. In one part, he shows a clip of him asking a classroom of young children to name the vegetables he was holding up, and they could not answer a single one correctly. One child could not even recognize a potato, likely because it wasn’t sliced and fried or chopped and molded into a tater tot. It was horrifying, but it has motivated me to teach, if I do actually teach next year, at the elementary school level so I can incorporate this knowledge into the curriculum and build a foundation for these kids. They can’t grow up not knowing what a tomato is. Watch it. I’m looking forward to his series about his work in West Virginia to change eating habits, which premieres this coming week. Watch that too.
