Healthsource: Thinking Beyond Our Plates: Critical Questions to Find Food Truth

Thinking Beyond Our Plates: Critical Questions to Find “Food Truth”
Melinda Hemmelgarn, M.S., R.D.

Award winning writer and radio host Melinda Hemmelgarn
(a.k.a. “The Food Sleuth”) connects the dots between food,
health and agriculture to promote “food system literacy.” In her
presentation, she’ll define “good” food and offer a thoughtful
critique of media messages about food and agriculture. She’ll
also discuss ways to use art and media to drive the good food
revolution, and show a collection of compelling images from
the advocacy project “FARM: Food, Art, Revolution, Media.”

Melinda Hemmelgarn, M.S., R.D., a.k.a. “The Food Sleuth,” is a
registered dietitian, “investigative” nutritionist, and award-winning
writer and radio host. A former Food and Society Policy Fellow,
Melinda connects the dots between food, health and agriculture,
and helps us “think beyond our plates” to find “food truth.” She
uniquely uses media and critical thinking skills to promote “food
system literacy.
