With over 850,000 views, Mohammad's second TED Talk highlights the complexities farmers face in today's challenging global food industry. The (simple) solution? Go local. Go to your farmers market!
In his first TED Talk, Mohammad speaks about Halal, Kosher, and merging both dietary laws to use food as a medium to foster cultural understanding and build peace.

Our FoodPrint: The ecological impact of our food supply chains
How to build a more inclusive dinner table: The tools we use to combat the rise in [anti-Semitic and anti-Muslim] bigotry
Keeping it Kosher (and Halal!): The growing market of faith-based foods
Building diversity and fostering inclusivity in startup culture
