This Month: A FOCUS ON FOOD
Food represents so much more than how we nourish ourselves. It had become abundantly clear that the simple act of eating involves the complex topics of culture, social equity, industry, water conservation, health, pollution and more. Many people are increasing their attention on the links between what is on their plate and the world around them.
This month, I have included articles that deal with diminishing resources- specifically meat and seafood. Sourcing out animal products that are ethically treated, grown locally and have a minimal impact on the environment is difficult to say the least.
These challenges have resulted in people foregoing meat altogether. Alternatively, for many, it has changed their relationship with what they eat; for others, it has become a business opportunity.
The included stories touch on some of the new attitudes and opportunities that are emerging in the food world. They are not without debate, but hey, at least they have people talking. I invite your comments.
