Ellen Gustafson: Obesity + Hunger = 1 Global Food Issue


According to Food Tank co-founder Ellen Gustafson, the American food system has changed dramatically in the past 30 years; agriculture has been consolidated, new and cheap processed food have gained popularity, and U.S. agricultural aid abroad has decreased. These factors are major contributors to the current problem of one billion hungry and one billion overweight people on the planet.



The co-creator of the philanthropic FEED bags, Gustafson says hunger and obesity are two sides of the same coin. At TEDxEast, she launched The 30 Project—a way to change how we farm and eat in the next 30 years, and solve the global food inequalities behind both epidemics.
