Indeed, the Academy has expressed formal interest on this topic, and foodies and bloggers nationwide have an opinion----likely based on theories and whimsical fantasies. Mark Rifkin, MS, RD, LDN will review essential outcomes criteria for evaluating eco-footprints, compare eco-footprints of various foods and review how students can easily integrate sustainable foods into their future career plans and client recommendations.
