  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Chuck Eggert

    Change Food

    As I look forward into the future and kind of envisioning what we think natural food is going to look like – and we’re still using the word as a descriptor – that I’m excited for the change, for the fact that people will go back to smaller farms, that people will go back to heirloom animals, that people – once they try them, they appreciate them. But there’s a concern that goes with that, is that: is change going to come too quickly? And that, can the infrastructure support … Read More

    Change Food

    My vision for the food system is that one day, hopefully in not the too distant future, everyone will have access to healthy food. That food will be considered a right just as water and air are a right, and that people will not be starving. I know that’s idealistic, and I know people might say that I’m a dreamer… who thought the Berlin wall would ever come down? Whoever thought that Nelson Mandela would ever get out of prison? I mean, there are huge massive shifts in consciousness that … Read More

    Change Food

    My vision for the food system is that I think everybody should grow all their own food in their own home. Well, that’s not going to happen. I know that. But I think that if they pay attention, and they demand that food be raised responsibly, that we can have – at least on the meat and poultry side – products that are raised without antibiotics, that are raised without added hormones, that treat the animal with dignity, that treat the person raising it with dignity, so that they earn … Read More

    Change Food

    More time at the table. You know, more time at the table, wherever that may be. I think it’s important. I tell people everything I learned about the world, I learned at my parents’ table. The good and the bad, I learned manners, learned social behaviors, learned how to interact, learned how to fight. But mostly, I learned that if you come together and you have a rhythm, and it’s what you do when you’re sharing sustenance, that it really knits society together. Read More

    Change Food

    Well my vision since I’m involved with Niman Ranch is to see the double and triple in the number of farmers and the amount of livestock that we can provide with high animal welfare levels, with clean raised; instead of having a small part of our food system being clean it would eventually become the majority of the food that’s available and being used by the people.

    Change Food

    My vision for the future of the food system is shortened ingredient lists, and consumers who actually care about what’s in their food, and take the time to read labels and ask questions, and make better choices. Read More

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Urvashi Rangan

    Change Food

    My vision for the food system is where we have long term solutions in place and we do things right all the way from the farm, from before the farm, and supplying the farm, and that we have safeguards in place all the way down the line. Right now we do a lot of things at the end of the line with Band-Aid solutions, whether we’re dunking chickens in chlorine, or cleaning things up at the end. And frankly, we don’t do enough at the beginning to make sure that … Read More

  • What is your vision for the Food System? – Sara Brito

    Change Food

    My vision for the future of food and the food system is one that is connected to life, because food is life, and when we are disconnected from food, and every aspect of the food system, starting with the water, and the land, the animals, the people who produce it, the purveyors who bring it to market, the chefs who cook it, the culinary directors and food service directors to cook it, and ultimately then again the guests or the general public – when we’re disconnected from the original source … Read More
