World Food Talk Draws Participants from 9 Nations

On Sunday, November 15, members of Learning Life’s Family Diplomacy Initiative and some of their family members gathered live via Zoom to talk about world food culture. Hailing from nine nations worldwide — the USA, El Salvador, Ecuador, Senegal, Nigeria, Burundi, Egypt, Pakistan and India — the 39 international dialogue participants discussed food scarcity and waste, the influence of power on food habits, generational differences in food consumption, and other topics.
