    Well I believe that one of the things we can realistically do, we must realistically do to change the food system is make sure that food workers are being paid a fair wage and given jobs with decent benefits. When you think about the irony that some of the most underpaid, the most hungry people in our country are themselves workers in the food chain – that to me is irony that we have to fix and once we put more resources into the pockets of food workers, we’ll be … Read More

    One thing that we can all do to really change the food system and work together for a better and more sustainable food system is to really recognize and value the work of women food producers around the world. Women make up nearly half of the world’s farm labor and yet they’re universally ignored by extension services, research institutions and funding organizations. Support your local women farmers wherever you are. Read More

    One of the things that I think we can do to help change the food system is to think more about our sources of protein, like where is our protein coming from. Because protein, and animals in particular, are one of the most resource intensive parts of the food system.

    The one thing that we have to do, which is not an easy lift, is break up the tiny cabal of businesses that now control almost every aspect of our food system. So whether you’re talking about potato chips, seeds, or meat – just a handful of companies now control every aspect of food production and processing, and so in order to change this dynamic, we’re really going to have to get together and engage in the political space and demand that our government do things like enforce anti-trust laws.

    Steve says: One thing that we need to change in the food system is to open our hearts, open our eyes, open our minds, and extend a hand. We need a hand up and not a hand out. I want people to walk with me and work with me. What we need is people to come together and realize this is our moment. We can change the way we eat. Read More
