Food Transformation

Are you a Food Citizen?

We are on the cusp of a food revolution. 

Our food system is in trouble: it's simply unsustainable. Agriculture already accounts for the bulk of our water and land use, and most human-generated greenhouse gases. A growing, increasingly urbanized population is stretching limited resources, already taxed by climate change, to the breaking point. 

We must radically change our diets and our mindsets about how we live and grow our food.

Our traditional approach, dependent on public entities for leadership and funding, will not work for such a monumental redesign. Rather, the impetus is on all of us: individuals, communities, and societies. 

We all must become Food Citizens. 

Food Citizens are more than conscious consumers. Food Citizens are informed, deliberate, and active. They understand the issues with the food system and the far-reaching impact of what they choose to eat. 

At WiseTribe, we help people become Food Citizens by providing a "prescription" of actions to change mindsets about food production and our diets. We encourage people to take further action by becoming a #1000WiseTriber, join us in the field as a volunteer, and give Meatless Monday a try at home with these recipes

Start here, budding Food Citizens!

Give #MeatlessMonday a try (or level up!) 

Join the Meatless Monday global movement and reduce meat in your diet for your health and that of the planet. These delicious recipes may make you forget meat altogether! 

Learn about the future of food 

Our monthly Food Tech Talks are conversations with thinkers and tinkerers on the future of food production education in schools. We'd love to see you there or at another event soon! Make sure to check out our blog and sign up for updates, as well. If you want even more Food Citizenship tools, become a #1000WT and get involved in reforming our food production system. 

Eat hyperlocal

Hyperlocal food is grown very close to where it's eaten (think blocks, not miles, between farm and fork). Learn where your food comes from and work on shifting it closer to home. (We recommend starting with the delicious microgreens grown by our partner, Hooked on Ponics!)
