Nowhere is the lack of sustainability clearer, yet less understood and appreciated than in our systems of farming and food production globally.
Consumers spend a minimum of 20% of their disposable incomes on food.
Supermarkets are filled year-round with an abundance and variety of processed food products from every corner of the earth. Our food is quick, convenient, and cheap.
This so-called modern, industrial food system has been an absolute failure in its most fundamental purpose. It fails to provide access to an adequate quantity of safe, wholesome food that supports healthy, active lifestyles.
The future stands for replacing the industrial food system with a network of community-based, sustainable food system.
