"Diet for a Hot Planet" and Eat Well Guide: Let’s take a bite out of climate change!

In "Diet for a Hot Planet: The Climate Crisis at the End of Your Fork and What You Can Do About
It," sustainable food advocate Anna Lappé deftly connects the dots between our food system and
the climate crisis. The food system is responsible for as much as one-third of all greenhouse gas
emissions. These emissions are particularly alarming because the food sector is the biggest driver
behind methane and nitrous oxide emissions, which have global warming effects many times more
powerful than carbon dioxide.

What can we do to reverse this? What if changing your diet could also make an impact on global
warming?

It can! Eating well can make a difference. That means eating fresh, local, and organic foods. It
means supporting sustainable farmers and the restaurants and purveyors who work with those
farms. By making changes in the way we eat, we can nourish our bodies and help heal the planet –
one tasty and healthy bite at a time.

Eating well is at the core of "Diet for a Hot Planet." That’s why we are so excited to team up with the
Eat Well Guide® to present this Guide to Good Food® for the cities that Anna will visit on her book
tour.

From Massachusetts to California, with stops in between, Anna will be revealing the links between
food and climate, and connecting with the movements across the country that are bringing
sustainable food to life. Along the way, there will no doubt be stops for delicious meals at the various
spots dished up in this Guide to Good Food®. We hope to see you there!

Acme Bread Company
San Francisco
Ferry Building Marketplace One, Marketplace Shop #15, San Francisco, CA 94111
Tel: 415-288-2978
http://www.ferrybuildingmarketplace.com/acme_bread

The Marketplace is the only place in the Bay Area—other than Acme's original Berkeley
location—that carries the full selection of Acme's nationally acclaimed artisan breads. Steve
Sullivan, founder and owner, says that after all these years Acme's foremost goal remains the
same— to bake outstanding bread.


Acme uses only organic flour and works closely with farmers in evaluating and selecting the grain
varieties for its flour each year. Three shifts of bakers work around the clock, seven days a week at
the Berkeley bakery in order to meet customer demand. At the Ferry Building Marketplace, breads
are baked fresh throughout the day in the hearth oven.


Sullivan became interested in baking bread 25 years ago as a busboy at Berkeley's famous Chez
Panisse restaurant where he worked while attending the University of California at Berkeley. He
started baking bread as a serious hobby after being inspired by Elizabeth David's cookbook "English
Bread and Yeast Cookery." At Alice Waters' request he went on to bake bread in the Chez Panisse
kitchen. In 1983 he and his wife, Suzie, opened their first—now legendary—bakery.

Although Clairesquares officially opened for business in 2006, Claire has been making her
delectable treats since she was a child growing up in County Cork, Ireland. By the age of 12, she
was baking from her mother's recipe books and experimenting with fudge, butterscotch, toffee and
caramel. She found that the best result was a mouthwatering combination of shortbread, caramel
and chocolate.


A young entrepreneur, Claire tried her hand at selling the squares at school. It wasn't long before
her classmates were addicted and she was selling out every week. Over the years, Claire continued
to bake her famous squares, developing a following among family and friends in Ireland. Years later
and miles away in San Francisco, she whipped up a batch of her buttery Irish treats for her friends.
They had never tasted anything quite like them. Encouraged by her friends' enthusiasm—and
constant harassment for just one more square—Claire decided to sell them again here in America,

Morell's Bread

Contact: Eduardo Morell & Tamsen Fynn

http://www.morellsbread.com/

Morell's Bread is a small artisan bakery and as I like to say, We are the bakery. From the beginning
I wanted to be able to sustain a work model in which we bake as much bread as we can in the brick
oven at HCA without resorting to artificial means to expand the business. My wife Tamsen works
side by side with me in the bakery making the scones and helping with the scaling and shaping of
the loaves. All of my loaves and baked goods are 100% organic using as many local ingredients as
possible and are completely handcrafted.

n a concession to physical well being, we recently purchased a Diosna diving arm mixer to mix and
knead the dough. It has a gentle folding motion that closely resembles the work we used to do by
hand. Everything we produce is 100% naturally leavened using a whole grain sourdough culture
that is about 10 years old. I feel that these factors produce bread that is unlike any other.


We offer some breads that are totally unique and much in demand: a 100% spelt bread, a 100% rye
bread and a loaf made from and heirloom variety of wheat grown by Full Belly Farm. These breads
offer an alternative to those who are sensitive to modern wheat, and are purchased enthusiastically
by many customers who thought they had to give up bread.

We love what we do, we love our bread and we hope that you will as well.

Special Request

http://www.specialrequestsf.com

Special Request humbly began with a challenge and specific request for a gluten-free vegan
dessert. Wheat and dairy are part of almost everything we consume. Vanessa began to experiment
with different recipes on order to create desserts that would not only be tasty and aesthetically
pleasing but also fill this specific niche. One that is filled with unsatisfying desserts that fall way short
on taste and presentation. With this in mind she embarked in intensive research related to celiac
disease, autism, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. This in turn led her to the kitchen,
where she labored restlessly for months developing the flavors, textures and look that has become
Special Request. After experimenting with new flavors and techniques, all of her experiences fused,
emerging into a healthy more sustainable way to create delicious desserts.

We also believe it is important to educate customers by providing academic studies, newspaper

Andy was an agriculture student for 10 years, and sustainable farming is always in his heart. After
being an apprentice in a Thai restaurant for three years, Andy decided put his ideas into action. He
started selling organic Thai food at a Berkeley farmers' market in 2005. To support the local
farmers, he decided to buy most his organic produces from the farmers' market.

Cindy was a business major, but now she is studying geography and environmental studies. Cindy
is always interested in organic farming, green business and socially responsible business. When
Andy and Cindy started this business, she wanted to manage her business with a holistic approach.
She supports local farmers, serves the community, and takes good care of her employees. Andy
and Cindy's beliefs, and practices attract many regular customers.

Since we started our business in 2005, our goal has been to serve high quality food, support local
farmers and businesses, and promote an environmentally friendly eating style.

Our choice of ingredients reflects our philosophy


Vegetables:We purchase over 90% of our produce from local organic farmers such as the Full Belly
Farm, River Dog Farm, Lucero Farm, Swanton Berry Farm, and Happy Boy Farm.

Chicken:We use Rocky Junior free-range chicken from Petaluma Farms.

Fish:We only use eco-friendly fish. Therefore, even though the name of one of our dishes is “Red
Snapper,” we stopped using red snapper a long time ago, because of their declining numbers. We
check the “best and worst” seafood guides to make our purchases. Currently, we are using Pollock
from Alaska.

Tofu:We use organic tofu from Hudo Tofu, a Santa Clara based tofu company that sells its products
at various farmers' market.

Brown rice:We use brown rice Measa Rice Farm, a small rice farm near Chico.

Green Gulch Farm is a five-acre agricultural oasis located on the Green Gulch Zen Center in Muir
Beach. Since all the farmhands are practicing Buddhists, a typical day here starts with the crew
gathering at 5am to meditate. After breakfast and a short break, they're off to the fields by 8:30 and
soon thereafter, the rumbling purr of the tractor and the sweet smell of biodiesel fill the air.


Depending on the season, between four and twelve people will be in the fields each day and one of
them is sure to be Farm Manager Matt Vivrett. Organically certified since 1985, this carefully-tended
land produces an abundance of lettuces, potatoes, chard and green garlic. About half of what is
grown here is sold at the San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmers Market, and the other half is divided
between Greens Restaurant in San Francisco and the 50-100 meals they serve each day at Green
Gulch.


Eventually, all the kitchen scraps from the practice center, plus all of those from Greens Restaurant,
return to the farm and are made into compost, where they will be reborn as next year's crop.

vendors are all local, almost all organic, and the focus is mostly on produce, but also features
vendors that sell prepared food. The setting is beautiful, and the prices are lower than at some other

roasts to enable subsistence coffee growers to improve their livelihoods and emerge from poverty.

A portion of Citizen Bean's profits will be donated to a charity of each roaster's choice; the company

Although Clairesquares officially opened for business in 2006, Claire has been making her
delectable treats since she was a child growing up in County Cork, Ireland. By the age of 12, she
was baking from her mother's recipe books and experimenting with fudge, butterscotch, toffee and
caramel. She found that the best result was a mouthwatering combination of shortbread, caramel
and chocolate.


A young entrepreneur, Claire tried her hand at selling the squares at school. It wasn't long before
her classmates were addicted and she was selling out every week. Over the years, Claire continued
to bake her famous squares, developing a following among family and friends in Ireland. Years later
and miles away in San Francisco, she whipped up a batch of her buttery Irish treats for her friends.
They had never tasted anything quite like them. Encouraged by her friends' enthusiasm—and
constant harassment for just one more square—Claire decided to sell them again here in America,
and Clairesquares was born!


Though our products may be sinful, Clairesquares is dedicated to being a socially responsible
business. We operate out of a certified Green Business commercial kitchen and are licensed as a

It has been just eight years since Sue Conley and Peggy Smith launched Tomales Bay Foods in a
renovated barn in Point Reyes Station, California. After successful careers as Bay Area chefs, the
women shifted their focus to Tomales Bay. Their new market would carry the region's finest natural
foods and other products, from prepared dishes, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, wines and
cheeses. Sue and Peggy began to make cheese from the pure, natural, organic milk produced by
Straus Family Dairy, and Cowgirl Creamery was born. All Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are still made
at the barn in Point Reyes Station.


In 2003, we opened Cowgirl Creamery Cheese Shop at the Ferry Building, along San Francisco's

We also believe it is important to educate customers by providing academic studies, newspaper

While wondering what she'd be when she grew up, Christine Doerr found herself watching a lot of
Julia Child. It was the late 1980s, and cooking shows were becoming popular. One day, Christine
announced, “I think I'll be a chef!” and promptly moved to San Francisco to attend the California
Culinary Academy. After being turned off by a butchery class, she decided she liked sugar and flour
more than raw meat, and her career as a pastry chef began!


Christine perfected her craft as a pastry chef during her more than 10 years of working in multiple
establishments in the San Francisco Bay Area such as Palo Alto Baking Company, Draeger's
Market and Flea St. Café. She wanted to open her own business. “Wouldn't chocolate truffles be
yummy?” she asked herself. Rather, she stuffed her back pockets full of culinary knowledge and
experience, and went back to school to study graphic design. But soon, her long-held dream of
creating chocolate truffles using fresh, local, organic ingredients once again came knocking at the
door. This time, Christine answered, and Neo Cocoa was born.

In a world of mass-produced foods and chain stores, there stand a few owner-operated businesses
that strive to offer to their communities a refreshing alternative. San Francisco Fish Market is one
such business. For seventeen years I owned and operated Rockridge Fish in the Market Hall in
Oakland. My staff and I treated our customers to a dazzling array of seafood products and worked
hard to educate them about the joys of cooking with and eating fish. Many of our customers followed
us to our new location in San Francisco's historic Ferry Building, where we've been carrying on the
tradition since January, 2004.

Slow Food USA is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to supporting and celebrating the
food traditions of North America through programs and activities dedicated to Taste Education,
Defending Biodiversity and Building Food Communities. Slow Food USA believes that pleasure and
quality in everyday life can be achieved by slowing down, respecting the convivial traditions of the
table and celebrating the diversity of the earth's bounty. From the spice of Cajun cooking to the
delicious simplicity of produce at a farmers' market; from animal breeds and heirloom varieties of
fruits and vegetables to handcrafted wine and beer, farmhouse cheeses and other artisanal
products; these foods are a part of our cultural identity. They reflect generations of commitment to
the land and devotion to the processes that yield the greatest achievements in taste.

These foods, and the communities that produce and depend on them, are constantly at risk of
succumbing to the effects of the fast life, which manifests itself through the industrialization and
standardization of our food supply and degradation of our farmland. By reviving the pleasures of the
table, and using our taste buds as our guides, Slow Food USA believes that our food heritage can
be saved. Our goal is to put the carriers of this heritage on center stage and educate our
membership about the importance of these principles. We hope you will join us.

Slow Food USA oversees Slow Food activities in North America, including the support and
promotion of the activities of more than 170 chapters that carry out the Slow Food mission on a local
level. Each chapter offers educational events and public outreach that promote taste education, that
advocate sustainability and biodiversity and that connect producers and "co-producers."

The look is modern and sophisticated yet the California cuisine with rustic Italian influences is the
grounding element in this San Francisco dining experience. The kitchen delivers a menu that
celebrates Italian farm-to-table cooking. Breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner menus showcase the
bounty of seasonal ingredients from the Ferry Plaza Farmer's Market. Some highlights include
artichoke hearts with a salt cod "baccala" stuffing and Meyer lemon aioli; house-made Maine lobster
and ham hock ravioli topped with a golden lobster zabaglione; and a New York steak served with a
bone marrow and lemon risotto, dandelion greens and a Barolo sauce. The kitchen's handmade
pastas and savory baker's pies draw raves including the playful "Margarita" pizza with nopales
(cactus), pickled jalapeno, Fontina cheese, cilantro, a sea-salt crust and a wedge of lime to squeeze
over the top.

bettesdiner@worldpantry.com
http://www.bettesdiner.com

It's an eclectic crowd, but then this is Berkeley. The birthplace of free speech. The epicenter of
eclecticism. With their love of good food, strong coffee and lively conversation, our customers give
new meaning to the phrase "counter culture."

Settle into a plush red Naugahyde booth, or find a place at the counter, and you're likely to be
waited on by a cartoonist, a performance artist, a Doctor of Theology or a rock musician. Drop a
quarter into the jukebox and you can choose from country, to rock, to classical, to opera. Anything
goes. This is no ordinary diner.

The food has never been ordinary either. We look at it this way: a BLT is a simple, wonderful thing.
But imagine a BLT made with thick-cut pepper bacon, local lettuce, juicy slabs of fresh tomato and
homemade mayo on toasted rye bread from the bakery down the block. It's still simple, but it's really
wonderful.

Now imagine an entire diner menu. From farm-style breakfasts to soups, salads, sandwiches,
blue-plate specials, pastries and pies, all our dishes are made from scratch with fresh, local
ingredients.

And then there are the pancakes and the scones. People have been known to make special trips for
them. And we're always getting requests for recipes. So eventually, we decided to share the wealth,
and we began testing and hand-packaging our first scone and pancake mixes and selling them out
of our takeout shop next door to the Diner.

Frankly, we were a little overwhelmed by the response, and we soon found ourselves with a second
business on our hands: Bette's Diner Products. Today, our mixes are selling like hotcakes in
specialty food shops and grocery stores throughout the western U.S. They're still made using the
same locally milled flours and premium, all-natural ingredients we use at the Diner.

And now that you've found us online, you can buy them from anywhere in the world and enjoy them
at your place any time. We hope they'll have your friends and family lining up for more.

Enjoy!

We began over 10 years ago as a small coffee bar in the SOMA district. As the lines grew longer

a demand for a comfortable space that provided quality yet reasonably priced food... so we evolved.
Since then we've grown into an eclectic café with tasty and affordable comfort food. Brickhouse
Cafe is run by founder, Fred Reeves, along with co-owner, Kim Kobasic. Our executive chef, Carlos
Maldonado, keeps busy personalizing our consistently fresh and wholesome menu of American
comfort food. The rustic, cozy and unpretentious atmosphere offers a reprieve from an often
stylized, aloof and fusion-obsessed environment. Our beef is all natural and provided by Fred's
family farm in eastern Washington. Our wild Sockeye Salmon is caught directly by Fred, who makes
an annual pilgrimage to Bristol Bay, Alaska. Our salmon is offered both freshly grilled and
house-smoked, in a variety of ways. We are now serving imported Bavarian Beer from breweries

heirloom seeds; wild-harvested leaves, flowers, barks and roots; local fish, seaweeds and coastal
grasses; pastured meat, poultry and eggs from small farmers. These are the flavors of place. The
process of finding ingredients and transforming them into cuisine are not separate events, but one
continuous action, constantly informed by cultural expectations and new ideas. We brine, cure and
smoke, as cooks have been doing for thousands of years, but we also embrace modern cooking
techniques. Our dishes are animated by flavors and textures both familiar and strange—Northern
Californian cuisine as it appears to us.

The idea for FLACOS came about in 2000. Every time I went to a Mexican restaurant, the only item I
could order from the menu was the, “Vegetarian Burrito” without cheese and sour cream. That got
boring, so I decided to take matters into my own hands and took the advice of friends (Allison, Joe,
Sara, Ben and Nigel) who knew that I loved to create delicious vegan meals said to make and sell
the food myself. So I did!
In the Fall of 2001 was when, “FLACOS”, debuted at the Berkeley Farmers Market. I remembered
some of the favorite foods I used to eat growing up when my sister (Arlene) and I would help our
mom make homemade tortillas. I remember my mom roasting the chiles in the morning for a sauce
to make tamales the next day. I asked my mom for the recipes that my grandmother had passed
unto her and replaced all the animal ingredients with vegetarian based substitutes. Working thru
countless nights and armed with two fresh pots of tamales for the masses, Carlos and I fed the few
people who showed up to try this new idea of, “Vegan Mexican Food” on a cold Saturday morning.
It was unheard of back then, and to this day, people always take a second glance after reading the
sign. Slowly but steadily it caught on and the “regulars” kept coming back and bringing friends and
family to try this new vegan food. I have met so many genuinely supportive, kind and cool people
while at the market and I am grateful for that. Some are vegan, some are vegetarians and some are
just people who enjoy deliciously authentic, hand prepared, Mexican food. No, you won't find any
microwaved foods in our dishes. All of the ingredients are GMO-FREE and organic as season and
availability permits.
Thanks to the loyal support from you, our customers, FLACOS has a restaurant location opening in
early March 2010 (3031 Adeline St., Berkeley CA 94703! We can also be found at all 3 Berkeley
Farmers Markets.
My never ending appreciation and undying gratitude goes out to all who have helped me in more
ways than one these past 9 years. Linda and Carolyn for your great ideas and traveling daycare for
those unexpected moments…. Elizabeth for helping me out in those tight spots…. Alfonso and
Sandra for your great logo and t-shirt designs and technical support…. Beatriz, Mago and Martha at
BAHIA…. Mary, for your counsel and patience... Arlene and Fernando for the great stay at Hotel
Jimenez…. Anastasia for being patient with me and being my ever-faithful assistant…. Abuelitas
Carmen & Santos "Chata" for passing on all those great recipes. I will always remember you both

Francisco. Since then, One Market has become the standard for sophisticated dining in the city. The
current incarnation features the Michelin Star winning farm-to-table food of Chef Mark Dommen,

Ogden. The restaurant features an open exhibition kitchen with a special "Chef's Table," an
wood-fired grill, private dining rooms, and a luxurious bar. Add a top-notch staff and there's little
wonder why One Market has been a preferred destination for dining from the opening day. We
believe that seasonal farm fresh produce is the best. (We helped establish the Ferry Plaza Farmers'
Market and now support it by shopping there.) We like to buy fish directly from the fisherman rather
than wait until it is two days older and has been sold twice. Local ranchers raise cattle, lamb and
quail to our specifications. It is a little extra work, but the quality is worth the effort. One Market
serves lunch Monday through Friday from 11:30AM-2PM, and dinner Monday through Saturday
from 5:30PM-9PM.

Mexican herbs, spices, and chiles, and have local artisans craft cheeses that replicated the nuances
of fresh Mexican cheeses. Love also explains everything from the naturally raised meats we grill,
simmer and stew for some of our dished, to the Mexican folk art we sleuth out for our walls. Now,
the traditional food at Picante may not be coming from a gradnmother's kitchen somewhere in
Mexico. But, judging from the reactions we get, it's pretty close.

In a world of mass-produced foods and chain stores, there stand a few owner-operated businesses
that strive to offer to their communities a refreshing alternative. San Francisco Fish Market is one
such business. For seventeen years I owned and operated Rockridge Fish in the Market Hall in
Oakland. My staff and I treated our customers to a dazzling array of seafood products and worked
hard to educate them about the joys of cooking with and eating fish. Many of our customers followed
us to our new location in San Francisco's historic Ferry Building, where we've been carrying on the
tradition since January, 2004.

It has been just eight years since Sue Conley and Peggy Smith launched Tomales Bay Foods in a
renovated barn in Point Reyes Station, California. After successful careers as Bay Area chefs, the
women shifted their focus to Tomales Bay. Their new market would carry the region's finest natural
foods and other products, from prepared dishes, fresh, organic fruits and vegetables, wines and
cheeses. Sue and Peggy began to make cheese from the pure, natural, organic milk produced by
Straus Family Dairy, and Cowgirl Creamery was born. All Cowgirl Creamery cheeses are still made
at the barn in Point Reyes Station.


In 2003, we opened Cowgirl Creamery Cheese Shop at the Ferry Building, along San Francisco's
Embarcadero. The location is incredible! There are many other shops to visit, as well as wonderful
farmers' markets on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Please visit Rachel and Becki, our

We work directly with small family farms, seeking out heirloom and forgotten fruits, hoping to revive
the tastes of our collective pasts. These fruits, once commonly grown and available, are now rare
and almost extinct. Supporting the farmers who grow them helps to ensure that these varieties of
fruit will not be lost.

Following traditional methods of preserving, organically grown fruit is hand-cut and stove-top cooked
in small batches with the addition of a minimal amount of organic sugar and no commercial pectin.

Endeavoring to utilize the entire fruit, we use the seeds and membranes of citrus to make our own
pectin for marmalades, and candy the peel. Inspired by traditional pairings, we infuse the flowers
and herbs we grow into the fruit to create complex flavors.




                                                                                                Page 117

Each pot yields an average of 8-10 jars and is hand poured. Letterpress labels are applied by hand.
It is our belief that this close attention to detail and extremely small scale yields the best quality
possible in a preserved fruit.

All of our fruit is grown within the U.S., the majority in Northern California. It is grown organically by
sustainable agricultural methods without the use of synthetic chemicals, allowing the fullest flavors in
the fruit to develop. Capturing these tastes is the craft of our business.

Our complete line is available direct from us online, at the San Francisco Ferry Plaza Farmers'
Market, and at The Still-Room Shop in Berkeley.

Our products are also available from select retailers.
Variety varies by outlet.

Since, so few African Americans are actually involved in farming, we believe, there is a correlation
between the few Black farmers actually farming, and the lack of fresh fruits and vegetables available
in our communities.

We believe, if we promote and support African Americans to participate in agriculture, we will have
mo' access to healthy foods, create new jobs, reduce the cost of food and have a better diet.

Currently, the news concerning the Black farmers class action settlement of $1.25 billion dollars is
making the headlines, however, a question we will have to prove is: can this settlement reverse the
decline of Blacks in agriculture?

OUR ROLE
Mo' Better Food's role has been to protect, preserve, and promote the well being of Blacks in
agriculture by establishing markets for our produce.
in communities that lack access to fruits and vegetables first.

OUR STRATEGY
Establish markets within the community.

FOOD SCARCITY
Today, many predominately African American communities throughout the United States have been
defined as "food insecure." A term used to say, the residents do not have access to fresh fruits and
vegetables.

For example, the state of California has the largest agricultural industry in the United States, yet
most of the Black communities within California are food insecure.

OUR PLEDGE
We must provide places that enable our farmers to get their food to the people. The more we do
these things, the more we will build Healthy economics.

SCHARFFEN BERGER Chocolate Maker was founded with one simple goal: to create the richest,
most flavorful chocolate by sourcing the best cacao in the world and using artisan chocolate-making
methods. We are the first ‘bean-to-bar' chocolate manufacturer established in the United States in
the past 50 years, and our attention to detail at every step of the process - working with farmers and
selecting fine beans to blend, roast and refine - sets us apart from other producers to bring you
America's Finest Dark Chocolate.

Founded in 1997 by Robert Steinberg and John Scharffenberger, SCHARFFEN BERGER began in
Robert's kitchen with a few simple kitchen appliances and nearly 30 varieties of cacao. The two
tested multiple combinations before perfecting a unique blend that highlighted the true flavor of
cacao instead of masking it with sugar and other flavors. It was well-received by Bay Area foodies
but it took a series of further experiments before the company could consistently make wonderful
chocolate. The first official batch of SCHARFFEN BERGER chocolate was made in their South San
Francisco factory using vintage European equipment.

To this day, our artisan chocolate making process has been preserved. Our chocolate makers travel
the world in search of the best cacao beans. Through carefully selecting and blending beans from a
range of countries in the cacao belt, the specific flavors of each origin combine to create chocolate
with balance and pleasing complexity. The result is a depth of flavor that celebrates the fine quality
of the original cacao in every batch we produce, bringing you the finest tasting chocolate in America.

Monterey Fish is based in San Francisco, California. While we are small enough to provide
individual personalized service our sales volume is great enough to allow us to buy in volume
directly from local boats and producers nationwide, enabling us to sell the best quality seafood at
fair prices.

Over the years, we've worked to establish a reputation for quality not just with our customers but
with our network of suppliers. Our suppliers know that if they've got premium product, we're willing to
pay for it. We at Monterey Fish do our best to bring you the freshest, quality seafood available.
Setting the standard for quality and service has been our obsession since 1979.

We follow the strictest guidelines when it comes to seafood handling and expect all our suppliers to
do the same. We welcome periodic inspection by the FDA, State and local Health Services. We are
HACCP compliant, meaning we comply to a strict set of regulations implemented by the Federal
Government to ensure the wholesomeness of seafoods. Monterey fish uses only suppliers, growers,
producers and fishermen who are HACCP compliant and have a detailed HACCP plan on record. As
well, all our shellfish comes from certified waters which are tested by the appropriate state and local
health agencies weekly.

Meatless Monday is an international movement to help people
reduce their meat consumption by 15% to improve personal
health and the health of the planet. We are a non-profit
initiative of The Monday Campaigns, in association with the
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

On average, Americans consume 8 ounces of meat per day – 45% more than the USDA
recommends. Going meatless once a week can reduce your risk of chronic preventable
conditions like cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity. It can also help limit your
carbon footprint and save precious resources like fresh water and fossil fuel. Our website
offers delicious meat-free recipes every Monday, compelling interviews and reviews, relevant
nutrition and health news, helpful meatless cooking demos, active Twitter and Facebook
communities, and a weekly email newsletter.

TAKING A BITE OUT OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Interview by Gabrielle Langholtz, Editor



                                        Ecologist, author, and green blueblood Anna Lappé is one of our very
                                        favorite Brooklynites. Her new book, Diet for a Hot Planet, says that
                                        we've eaten our way into climate change-and we can eat our way out.

                                        Describe life in 100 years if we continue on our current path.

                                        Scientists estimate that we're looking at an increase of as
                                        much as 6.3 degrees Fahrenheit by century's end, and more
                                        weather extremes like droughts and floods. Said one expert,
                                        farming in New York State could feel like farming in
                                        Georgia.

                                        You write that the global food chain is responsible for a
                                        whopping third of what's heating the planet. Come on. A third?

                                         A third of the planet's arable land is dedicated to raising
                                         food for our more than 60 billion livestock animals. Factor
in emissions from their waste, as well as the packaging, processing, transport, refrigeration and
preparing of the rest of our food and it adds up to as much as one third. Pretty shocking, huh?

Why has food's role in global warming been all but absent from the conversation?

Think about tobacco. It took decades before we had an open public conversation that cigarettes kill,
because the tobacco industry engaged in a strategic campaign to undermine science. Today,
emissions-spewing companies have taken a page from the tobacco playbook, pouring tens of
millions into spreading doubt about the science of climate change. Despite the misinformation, we
now have international consensus on the severity of the climate crisis and the need for urgent action.




                                                                                                                Page 137
                                                                                                 10




(Continued from previous page)

How does "personal responsibility" weigh against policy change – or lack thereof?

Individual choices are important but not enough. We wouldn't berate someone for not taking the
subway to work in a city with no public transportation. Nor would we expect a lone individual to
excavate subway tunnels, purchase fuel-efficient buses or lay down tracks for high-speed rail. When
it comes to transportation, we know we need government to invest in infrastructure.

The same is true for food. We need investment in infrastructure that makes choosing locally raised,
organically grown, fresh whole foods as easy as grabbing a Big Mac at the drive-through.

Today, billions of taxpayer dollars support policies that make it hard, if not impossible, to choose
climate-friendly food. In the past 12 years, we've paid $177 billion mostly to America's largest
commodity farmers. The result is a climate-destructive food system that props up feedlot meat and
processed foods by making the key ingredients so artificially cheap.

Elected officials need to know that the Farm Bill-and all food policy-is part of the solution to make
us healthier and heal the climate.

It's almost 40 years since your mom wrote Diet for a Small Planet. What book might your
eight-month-old daughter pen in another few decades?

You mean after she writes the tell-all memoir about how her mom force-fed her homemade granola,
never took her to McDonald's and made her reuse her Ziploc bags? Õ
