Faith Middleton Show: The High Cost Of Cheap Food

Raj Patel is an author and lecturer on the high cost of cheap food.  And he explains how we construct our food systems here and around the world, following the food from seed to store to plate. 

The global food system is a mess, and not the least bit fair, when you consider some countries with so much and some with so little in the year 2010.

How do we fix this broken system?  Raj Patel has some ideas.  He will be speaking at University of Connecticut's Jorgensen Center in Storrs, Connecticut, November 15 at 7 p.m.
