"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!

The smell of sizzling bacon on a Sunday morning. The snap of a hot dog at a mid-summer
ballgame. Saucy barbeque ribs at a backyard cookout. These experiences are the foundation of
Brooklyn Cured. Brooklyn Cured is one-man show that turns out delicious meaty treats such as hot
dogs, applewood-smoked bacon, and maple-glazed ham. It is based on the traditions of
Italian-American pork stores, the Lower East Side deli, the French charcuterie, and the German beer
garden. Though Brooklyn Cured is based on tradition, its flavors are modern and its values are
progressive. All of our meat is sourced from local farms that use sustainable practices which keep
their animals happy and the environment healthy.

Fleisher's Grass-fed & Organic Meats is starting a door-to-door, fresh meat delivery service to
Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island City. Fleisher's was recently named 'one of the best butchers
in the country' by Bon Appetit magazine but until now you have had to visit one their shops in
Kingston, NY or Rhinebeck, NY to enjoy their products. That's about to change.

Fleisher's sources directly from local Hudson Valley farms and only sells meat that comes from
well-treated, healthy, drug-free animals. Serious cooks and serious carnivores know it's nearly
impossible to find local pasture-raised, antibiotic and hormone-free meat in the City. And you don't
know what you're missing if you've never tried Fleisher's intensely flavorful beef (including steaks,
burgers and absurdly good hot dogs), the revelatory Berkshire pork, the 100% organic chicken
(which will remind you why a simple roast chicken is one of life's greatest pleasures) and the lamb?
Fuhgeddabouddit!

So forget pounding the pavement for inferior product or standing in line at the green market for
frozen meat. Fleisher's will bring whatever it is you want right to your home or office. And everything
that arrives on your doorstep is cut, ground and packaged the same day. If you are interested go to

Grow it, chop it, cook it, and serve it. Try and keep it local. We shun the world of processed and
industrialized food.

All of our meat comes from animals that are raised humanely, without the use of hormones and
antibiotics. In searching for fresh, delicious produce, we have learned that organic isn't always
possible or even optimal. We focus on working with local, sustainable farms and recognize that
sometimes farmers have to use certain pesticides and fertilizers to protect their crops and keep their
farms running. But we spend the time to visit these folks and understand why they do what they do,
and how they do it. Some embrace organic, others IPM (Integrated Pest Management), and yet
others are forced to practice conventional methods.

'least visited historical site' - Fort Reno, a large man-made hill where DC indie and hardcore bands
would and still play in an on-going free summer concert series.

The space on Union Street was renovated by Jacques Gautier, who owns the restaurant Palo
Santo. Gautier used reclaimed hardwood, mirrors, and even a plaster slat ceiling to create a warm,
intimate environment that manages to feel deceptively spacious given its small footprint.

In the kitchen, Lia Forman (formally of Colicchio and Sons) smokes and braises meats to succulent
perfection. About half the menu will change seasonally with the core of the menu being beef brisket,
whole-hog pulled pork and pork ribs. Specials like duck, game and odd bits will rotate through the
menu, based on availability. The meat served is organic, grass-fed, and sourced from Heritage
Foods and Pat LaFrieda.

The bar emphasizes cocktails created with American craft distillers, with an emphasis on Brooklyn's
own spirits, like Brooklyn Gin and Bitters, Old Man.

We are a member-owned and operated food store -- an alternative to commercial profit-oriented
business. As members, we contribute our labor: working together builds trust through cooperation
and teamwork and enables us to keep prices as low as possible within the context of our values and
principles. Only members may shop, and we share responsibilities and benefits equally. We strive to
be a responsible and ethical employer and neighbor. We are a buying agent for our members and
not a selling agent for any industry. We are a part of and support the cooperative movement. We
offer a diversity of products with an emphasis on organic, minimally processed and healthful foods.
We seek to avoid products that depend on the exploitation of others. We support non-toxic,
sustainable agriculture. We respect the environment. We strive to reduce the impact of our lifestyles
on the world we share with other species and future generations. We prefer to buy from local,
earth-friendly producers. We recycle. We try to lead by example, educating ourselves and others
about health and nutrition, cooperation and the environment. We are committed to diversity and
equality. We oppose discrimination in any form. We strive to make the Coop welcoming and
accessible to all and to respect the opinions, needs and concerns of every member. We seek to
maximize participation at every level, from policy making to running the store. We welcome all who
respect these values.

http://www.bkfarmyards.com/

bk farmyards is a Brooklyn based decentralized farming network providing local food to reduce the
city's reliance on fossil fuels and offering local jobs to boost the economy. We are seeking
partnerships with developers willing to temporarily transform their idle land to farmyard; homeowners
who want to eat from their own yard; and city agencies holding under-utilized land. Our strategy is to
stay nimble, growing food between the cracks of urban development.

bk farmyards mission is to bring communities together around the dinner table: our educational
agenda includes eating seasonally, growing food locally, storing and preparing food, species
biodiversity, and food democracy. We aim to build a local food network that enhances the health of
our culture, our people, and our environment.

BK Farmyard reconnects farmers and consumers as co-producers of the foodscape. The strategy
transforms private yards into farms and inserts neighborhood dinner party structures for the
celebration of food. Residents pay for organic yard-farming and produce delivered to their doors;
others without yards pay for produce cultivated in these farmyards.

When Rachel Wiesenfeld started WISE ORGANIC PASTURES in 1992, she wanted what any good
Jewish mother would want for her family: wholesome chicken raised the old-fashioned way - free
range, organically fed, hormone-free - and processed according to strict kosher standards.

At the time, there was organic chicken. And there was kosher chicken. But no one was offering
chicken that was both organic and kosher. So with just a telephone, a carload of chickens, and
plenty of chutzpah, Rachel started WISE ORGANIC PASTURES. She partnered with an organic
farmer and family-owned poultry processor who met her high standards, and wrote her first orders in
her Brooklyn kitchen.

Fleisher's Grass-fed & Organic Meats is starting a door-to-door, fresh meat delivery service to
Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island City. Fleisher's was recently named 'one of the best butchers
in the country' by Bon Appetit magazine but until now you have had to visit one their shops in
Kingston, NY or Rhinebeck, NY to enjoy their products. That's about to change.

Fleisher's sources directly from local Hudson Valley farms and only sells meat that comes from
well-treated, healthy, drug-free animals. Serious cooks and serious carnivores know it's nearly
impossible to find local pasture-raised, antibiotic and hormone-free meat in the City. And you don't
know what you're missing if you've never tried Fleisher's intensely flavorful beef (including steaks,
burgers and absurdly good hot dogs), the revelatory Berkshire pork, the 100% organic chicken
(which will remind you why a simple roast chicken is one of life's greatest pleasures) and the lamb?
Fuhgeddabouddit!

So forget pounding the pavement for inferior product or standing in line at the green market for
frozen meat. Fleisher's will bring whatever it is you want right to your home or office. And everything
that arrives on your doorstep is cut, ground and packaged the same day. If you are interested go to
their website www.fleishers.com, click on the NYC Delivery tab, give them your information and they
will keep you updated.

drinking the beverage in hopes it would kick that heartburn to the curb, like his friend reported it had
for her. Initially, he made kombucha solely to improve his own health. However, once he began
sharing his home brew with others, he became overwhelmed by the shear amount his friends
consumed! Before long, he was in business and the Kombuchman was born!

history that we Americans have allowed ourselves to become separated from these majestic birds,
relegating them to massive factory farms far from our thoughts and lives. This has not been good for
them or for us. It's time to reunite.

Victory Chicken exists to make it as easy as possible for every person, family, school, restaurant,
museum, day care center, senior residence or anyone else to experience the joy of raising chickens.
We do this by offering simple and affordable services to setup coops and maintain them over time,
and by making experts available to our customers so they can tend their flocks confidently.

When Rachel Wiesenfeld started WISE ORGANIC PASTURES in 1992, she wanted what any good
Jewish mother would want for her family: wholesome chicken raised the old-fashioned way - free
range, organically fed, hormone-free - and processed according to strict kosher standards.

At the time, there was organic chicken. And there was kosher chicken. But no one was offering
chicken that was both organic and kosher. So with just a telephone, a carload of chickens, and
plenty of chutzpah, Rachel started WISE ORGANIC PASTURES. She partnered with an organic
farmer and family-owned poultry processor who met her high standards, and wrote her first orders in
her Brooklyn kitchen.

bk farmyards is a Brooklyn based decentralized farming network providing local food to reduce the
city's reliance on fossil fuels and offering local jobs to boost the economy. We are seeking
partnerships with developers willing to temporarily transform their idle land to farmyard; homeowners
who want to eat from their own yard; and city agencies holding under-utilized land. Our strategy is to
stay nimble, growing food between the cracks of urban development.

bk farmyards mission is to bring communities together around the dinner table: our educational
agenda includes eating seasonally, growing food locally, storing and preparing food, species
biodiversity, and food democracy. We aim to build a local food network that enhances the health of
our culture, our people, and our environment.

BK Farmyard reconnects farmers and consumers as co-producers of the foodscape. The strategy
transforms private yards into farms and inserts neighborhood dinner party structures for the
celebration of food. Residents pay for organic yard-farming and produce delivered to their doors;
others without yards pay for produce cultivated in these farmyards.

Spoons Across America is a not-for-profit organization founded on the premise that it is essential to
the health of our children and our society to bring the joys of the table to the children of America.
The table is where children learn about conversation, consideration, tolerance and other tools for
getting along in society. When activities are centered around healthful food, children experience a
fun and exciting way to learn about nutrition, the physiology of taste, and how food weaves its way
through daily life, from the farm to the table.

Spoons Across America works to influence the eating habits of children through hands-on education
that celebrates the connection to local farmers and the important tradition of sharing meals around
the family table. All of the program's recipes use a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains,
which are beneficial to long-term health and well-being.

http://www.cloverclubny.com/

“Who enters here leaves care behind, leaves sorrow behind, leaves petty envies and jealousies
behind.”

So went the motto of the original Clover Club, a select group of Philadelphia journalists who, from
1882 until the 1920's met once a month at the Bellevue Hotel to eat and drink and talk. The only
people the above words didn't necessarily apply to were their guests, celebrities of the day who
were invited to address the club and were heckled relentlessly once they did—the more pretentious
or self-important they were, the worse they got it. But they came anyway. Maybe it was because
“Major” Moses P. Handy, the club's president, knew everyone who was anyone and was liked by
them all. Or maybe it was the challenge—if you could get over with the Clover Club, you could get
over anywhere. Probably, though, they came and took their lumps because of George Boldt. Boldt,
you see, was the Bellevue's manager, and—in all matters pertaining to food and drink, anyway—he
was a perfectionist.

To sit at his table was worth a little ribbing. Throw in a couple of the club's famous cocktails, and
you'd be singing along with the best of ‘em: “While we live we live in clover; When we die we die all
over!

All of our meat comes from animals that are raised humanely, without the use of hormones and
antibiotics. In searching for fresh, delicious produce, we have learned that organic isn't always
possible or even optimal. We focus on working with local, sustainable farms and recognize that
sometimes farmers have to use certain pesticides and fertilizers to protect their crops and keep their
farms running. But we spend the time to visit these folks and understand why they do what they do,
and how they do it. Some embrace organic, others IPM (Integrated Pest Management), and yet
others are forced to practice conventional methods.

http://www.fort-reno.us/index.html

Fort Reno is 25-seat restaurant serving cocktails, barbeque and American comfort food, located at
669 Union St between 4th and 5th Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Created by childhood friends who live in South Brooklyn, Fort Reno is named after Washington DC's
'least visited historical site' - Fort Reno, a large man-made hill where DC indie and hardcore bands
would and still play in an on-going free summer concert series.

The space on Union Street was renovated by Jacques Gautier, who owns the restaurant Palo
Santo. Gautier used reclaimed hardwood, mirrors, and even a plaster slat ceiling to create a warm,
intimate environment that manages to feel deceptively spacious given its small footprint.

In the kitchen, Lia Forman (formally of Colicchio and Sons) smokes and braises meats to succulent
perfection. About half the menu will change seasonally with the core of the menu being beef brisket,
whole-hog pulled pork and pork ribs. Specials like duck, game and odd bits will rotate through the
menu, based on availability. The meat served is organic, grass-fed, and sourced from Heritage
Foods and Pat LaFrieda.

Frankies is a unique restaurant with a fresh approach to the lighter side of Italian cooking. Frank and
Frank hold on to a nostalgic love of the old ways they learned to revere in their grandparents'
kitchens—sausages made in storied butcher shops the same way for over 100 years and
vegetables sold by the neighborhood's push cart grocer. But they are also dedicated to serving
fresh, healthy, local, humanely raised fare. To lend an old world flavor to their modern Italian
cooking, Frank and Frank established relationships with local butchers, delis, cheesemongers,
coffee purveyors, organic grocers and brewmasters who are similarly dedicated to old-school
quality.

It's pretty close to impossible to be completely eco-friendly all the time in every aspect of your life.
We know we surely are not and are not claiming to be but we want to do our part while being a

When we use the terms “Raw” and “Living” what we are saying is that our food has not been
steamed, baked, fried, or grilled to 300+ degrees destroying all vital nutrients. At Organic Village we
include as many “living” foods as possible in all of our menu items. We bring life to seeds and nuts
by soaking and sprouting on premise numerous times daily. Our food is prepared fresh throughout
the day and is “alive” with vitamins, minerals and protein. Also, all of our menu items are gluten free

"Ortin" is a word from an old Italian dialect that represents a small garden plot next to a farmhouse

Sarah planted an herb garden as well as an in-ground vegetable garden that will feed Ortine's

bush adds a sweet aroma to the space. Two benches for coffee drinkers mark the wooded terrace.

Instead of relying solely on extracts, we steep source ingredients in our home-made mix, slowly
drawing out flavors of vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, peanuts, and coffee beans. And yet, as
serious as we are about our craft, we never forget who we make ice cream for: the kids. Your kids,

selling cheese, our staff goes to extremes.

Grow it, chop it, cook it, and serve it. Try and keep it local. We shun the world of processed and
industrialized food.

All of our meat comes from animals that are raised humanely, without the use of hormones and
antibiotics. In searching for fresh, delicious produce, we have learned that organic isn't always
possible or even optimal. We focus on working with local, sustainable farms and recognize that
sometimes farmers have to use certain pesticides and fertilizers to protect their crops and keep their
farms running. But we spend the time to visit these folks and understand why they do what they do,
and how they do it. Some embrace organic, others IPM (Integrated Pest Management), and yet
others are forced to practice conventional methods.

Check out our website for a list of local suppliers.

Fleisher's Grass-fed & Organic Meats is starting a door-to-door, fresh meat delivery service to
Manhattan, Brooklyn and Long Island City. Fleisher's was recently named 'one of the best butchers
in the country' by Bon Appetit magazine but until now you have had to visit one their shops in
Kingston, NY or Rhinebeck, NY to enjoy their products. That's about to change.

Fleisher's sources directly from local Hudson Valley farms and only sells meat that comes from
well-treated, healthy, drug-free animals. Serious cooks and serious carnivores know it's nearly
impossible to find local pasture-raised, antibiotic and hormone-free meat in the City. And you don't
know what you're missing if you've never tried Fleisher's intensely flavorful beef (including steaks,
burgers and absurdly good hot dogs), the revelatory Berkshire pork, the 100% organic chicken
(which will remind you why a simple roast chicken is one of life's greatest pleasures) and the lamb?
Fuhgeddabouddit!

So forget pounding the pavement for inferior product or standing in line at the green market for
frozen meat. Fleisher's will bring whatever it is you want right to your home or office. And everything



                                                                                                  Page 75

At Urban Rustic we strive to bring our community the best of local farmers and producers along with
reliably made staples from farther afield. We feature bio-dynamic, organic and sustainably produced
foods and feel that knowledge of the sources of our sustenance is key to eating healthy and eating
well. At Urban Rustic, we know where our food comes from. We envision the shop as a place where
suppliers and consumers can come together. By bringing food producers to the table to speak about
their work, and providing tear sheets and photo essays about our goods, we hope to illuminate the
story lines behind our meals. Urban Rustic is our labor of love in the neighborhood we call home and
we want to be a model business. We've built the floors, shelves and counters from Adirondack wood
we have harvested and milled ourselves. We buy our electricity from wind-powered sources, our
fresh foods from local farmers, and have abandoned the use of unnecessary disposables.

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.

                                                                                                 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
