In this episode of 92Y Talks, world-renowned food experts Frances Moore Lappé and Mark Bittman discuss the 50th anniversary edition of Lappé's groundbreaking Diet for a Small Planet, originally released in 1971. The book first exposed the needless waste built into a meat-centered diet. Now, Lappé goes even deeper, showing us how plant-centered eating can help restore our damaged ecology, address the climate crisis, and move us toward real democracy. The conversation was streamed live as part of the 92nd Street Y's online talks series on October 25, 2021.
