the role that food choices play in leading a healthy lifestyle. In addition, this course will help students gain a deeper understanding on sustainable food systems by delving into the topics of sustainable food production, environmental impacts of agriculture, and public health issues. This course will seek to form a relationship between food and the environment, in regards to how to live a clean and balanced lifestyle into one’s future.
