As Danielle Nierenberg opens the morning session she encourages all to grab their cup of coffee and return to their seats.
The first session entitled Recognizing Workers in the Food System turns into more of a bashing of pesticide use in farming than a discussion about food workers.

Link to excellent research project explaining the whole it in great detail.
So I ask Food Tank people which is it. Do you condemn or endorse pesticide use to improve human health and the planet?
