Socially Conscious Food
Molly Reams Thompson Keynotes - The Molly Reams Thompson speech examines the role food can play in stimulating the local economy....
In her work at the University of Toledo business incubator, she encourages entrepreneurs to consider people, planet and profit (otherwise known as the triple bottom line.) She explores how food can be perceived in each of these three categories in her local economy speech. Sharing food brings people together. Health land creates healthy food, which results in healthy people. Eating locally has many benefits, besides a more profitable community. It also cuts down on transportation and synthetic fertilizer use. Healthier locally sourced food also increases productivity and puts less strain on the healthcare system.
