Ethics of Eating

Under the forces of our formidable and complex agricultureal system, can we satisfy our conscience while we feed our families? Award-winning authors Barbara Kingsolver and Michael Pollan turn their lives towards questions many of us are asking about our food. Kingsolver recounts her family's year-long adventure eating primarily what they could grow or raise themselves. Pollan makes the case for a sustainable revolution, from the farm bill to the table.
