Why does a simple bunch of carrots cost more than a package of Twinkies? In this video from the Nourish Video Encyclopedia, best-selling author Michael Pollan investigates this question and its effect on our health and well-being.

Nourish is a national educational initiative designed to open a meaningful conversation about food and sustainability. With a distinctly positive vision, Nourish celebrates both food and community. Learn more at www.nourishlife.org.

Michael Pollan is the author of In Defense of Food, Food Rules, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, and other best-selling books. Pollan currently serves as the Knight Professor of Science and Environmental Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.

?Stay tuned for more selections from the Nourish Video Encyclopedia, a collection of short films that explore the story of our food. Join chef Jamie Oliver, author Anna Lappé, pediatrician Nadine Burke, and others committed to building healthy communities.

In late October and November 2010, look for the Nourish: Food + Community television special on your local PBS station. If you’re an educator, a Nourish middle school curriculum guide will be available in October 2010. And if you’re a non-profit leader, active congregation member, or good food advocate, Nourish will offer tool kits for organizing community screenings and conversations.

Be part of the food revolution. Nourish yourself. Nourish the world.
