"As always, your presentation was informative and enlightening.  You take on a difficult and uncomfortable topic that no one wants to acknowledge, but we all benefit from knowing the realities of how and where "meat" products are produced.  You provide a valuable learning experience for students."

- Gerald Climmons

Science teacher

"Wow, I cannot thank you enough for coming and speaking to all of my classes over the two day span. After the kids digested your information over the weekend, I’ve had multiple students come and tell me they are now vegetarians- because of you enlightening them on the treatment of animals and what meat really does to your body (just some of the reasons they mentioned). You spoke volumes to them and were engaging from start to finish!"

- Lauren Lloyd

Food and Consumer Science teacher

"I really enjoyed the program. It was very informative. You made me want to look at my own life and change the way I eat. I feel as if I am equipped to make informed decisions about where to get my food from. It is nice to know that people care so much about the world we live in. We can make an impact (on nutrition and wellness), one person at a time." 

- Whittney M. Peckham

Food and Consumer Science teacher

"Lorena really presented the facts in a manner to which the kids were able to relate. I saw the wheels turning in their heads about choices they make and how it affects the world around them. Personally, the presentation hit home. I have changed many habits to which my family has become accustomed. Everything about the day was top notch: power points, videos, demonstrations, and Lorena! I would recommend it for any class (science or not). My kids enjoyed the topics (which was a huge surprise) and were more involved than I had ever seen them before. Thank you!" 

- Kristen McCarter

Chemistry Teacher

"Thanks so much for your informative presentation!  The students learned so much valuable information which will make them more informed consumers.  I learned a lot, too!"  

- Cheryl Whitfield

"This presentation worked well with our project and helped the students connect what they eat with their health and environment."

- Wendy Hill

Biology, Brookland Cayce High School, Lexington Two

“Keith’s presentation on the environmental impact of animal agriculture was both powerful and thought provoking.  My high school science students were thoroughly engaged and were prompted to think critically about this very relevant and important topic.  Many gained new insight into the ways in which their own actions and choices impact the health and well-being of the planet.  We will definitely invite Keith to speak again and recommend his presentation to high school classes everywhere!”

- Valerie Katz

Science Teacher, Montessori High School

"Seriously... I lived in complete ignorance in regards to how the almost 10 billion land animals we eat in the U.S. are raised. Your presentation was eye-opening and mind-opening. I plan to vote with my wallet from now on because my choices matter. Thank you!"

"Your presentation about ethics and eating habits was an eye-opener. I will never look at the food I eat the same way. Thank you, especially, for not sugar-coating the truth. We deserve to know."

- Yoselin

college student

"Thank you so much for coming to speak to our class! I wish more teachers invited speakers that can actually make a difference in the world like you. I have chosen to eat with healthfulness and compassion. My parents are supportive and are making changes. I no longer look at meat, eggs and dairy as food."


- Robert

9th grade

"I really enjoyed how motivated you were to get your point across; it really put me on the edge of my seat to know more about these things. One of the videos was hard to watch but I'm so thankful you showed it to us. I now understand why the standard American diet is so unhealthy and cheap."
