TheFibberati

In this 12-minute TedX video, Alan Lewis brings into sharp contrast what the international food industry tells us about our food versus what their production operations actually look like.

He highlights the dishonest and disingenuous efforts on the part of much of the commercial food industry, which are aimed primarily at bolstering the health of their profit margins (not the health of their customers).

At the small school I serve (Guthrie CSD in Guthrie, Texas), we have made significant commitments to feeding our children (and staff) the healthiest food we can find in the healthiest ways we can accomplish.  The process has been neither easy nor cheap.  However, we have concluded that we can, we MUST, combat the "fibberati" (as Lewis calls them) in the interest of the long-term health and well-being of our children.

We believe educating our children in this way is every bit as important as teaching them math, science, English, and social studies.
