The Earth on Your Plate: How Diet Change is Essential to Saving our Planet




Have you ever wondered about the impacts of growing enough food to feed 8 billion people three meals a day?


The global consequences of humanity's food choices are enormous.  In this presentation, we will explore the surprising connections between our daily food choices and climate change, deforestation, species extinction, water scarcity, air and water pollution, world hunger, human health, and many other serious environmental and social issues. 


You’ll learn how simple dietary changes, adopted on a large scale, are essential to solving some of humanity's greatest challenges, and critical to preserving the planet for future generations.


Join us, come early for our tradition of desserts and socializing before the meeting begins at 7pm!


Our Speaker, Mohan Gurunathan is an engineer, entrepreneur, and activist who has lived and worked in Silicon Valley for over 20 years. He is an expert on food systems sustainability and is frequently invited to speak about the environmental and social impacts of our individual diet choices.

Mohan played a leading role in convincing the City of Mountain View to include plant-based diet promotion as a part of their 2019 Environmental Sustainability Plan. He also serves as an advisor and/or board member for numerous environmental and animal advocacy nonprofits.
