“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another,” said Mahatma Gandhi nearly a century ago, whose words hold true even to this day. 

Where does the food we eat come from? Does the cost justify the means? 

In this episode, a little boy from an Amazonian village shares his tale of personal loss due to the grave injustices in our food supply chain. Does it move Hannah, a young American intern in the area, enough to make more conscious choices in the food she buys? 

This episode highlights the need for awareness of the origins of our food and the loss of life and biodiversity that follows as a consequence of its unsustainable production.
