Diane believes nearly everything—climate change, education, health—can be traced back to food. “It’s the civil rights issue of the 21st Century,” she says. “If we want to stop wars, we need to feed people. And once they’re fed they can be educated, and once they’re educated they can help themselves. I know I’m being very idealistic, but I really believe that.”
