The fetishization of food is everywhere from the Food Network to Instagram but we are all living longer, sicker lives.
CSA boxes have become the new status symbol but most Americans still don’t eat food as it was meant to be consumed: locally and seasonally. Hyper-processed and genetically engineered products continue to power our food chain, and the environmental impact of how we eat is potentially devastating...not just for family dinner but for our communities and, ultimately, the planet at large.
What is our food future? Who can get our relationship to food back on track? And how can we make good food available, affordable and accessible to all?
It is individuals who will power the food movement, one table at a time. What will it take to disrupt the narrative of special interests and big business winning out over our national health? How can food producers, innovators and retailers work together to write a new food story?
