TEDxFruitvale - Tim Galarneau - Empowering College Students to Control What They Eat

The junk food industry spends $4.2 billion/year to sell us... crap. College-age students have seen 70,000 junk foods ads by the time they enroll. Here's what some of them are doing to reclaim their rights to real food. About Tim Galarneau, Real Food Challenge: In 2004 Tim founded the California Student Sustainability Coalition's Foods Initiative that helped link and mobilize students across California toward greater sustainability and social justice in their food systems. Tim then joined forces with others across the U.S. to cofound the national Real Food Challenge (RFC) in 2008. RFC is working to shift over $1 billion in annual food procurement and consumption in colleges and universities in the United States by 2020. Tim is also part of a diverse network of young leaders across the country, known as Live Real, that are creating a new "move-entity" for empowering youth and vulnerable communities toward changing their food systems. This talk is part of Session Two: Movement for TEDxFruitvale, which was held on October 14, 2011 at Mills College in Oakland, CA. The conference's theme was Harvesting Change, and it focused on farmworkers, labor and other social justice movements, and fair labor practices in business. http://www.tedxfruitvale.org/ About TEDx, x = independently organized event: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
