I think the one thing folks can do if they want to move the food system in a different direction is understand where their food comes from, get involved in their food and make decisions based on what their personal preferences are.
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 […]
Twenty percent of all fruits and vegetables in America go to waste – just because they’re imperfect. That is something we can change by asking for it, eating it and sharing it.
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 […]
All responsibility feels like preaching, but when quality, and responsible farming, and responsible animal husbandry, and responsible environmental practices meet hedonism and pleasure, there’s just no stopping it.
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. And what we’re doing at […]

My dream to remake the food system really asks each individual to do the most radical thing they can think of – whether it’s changing their individual eating habits, buying habits, cooking habits; whether it’s running for office – foodies, running for Congress – to change our political system. I just think that if everyone […]
We can realistically get more people involved through dialogue. I think that while we are a very educated population, maybe we know a little bit more, I think the conversation needs to really be inclusive of people who don’t have access.
Very simply what we can realistically do to change the food system is worry about ourselves and making better choices at home for ourselves and our families. That’s what we can do, and we can talk to our kids about food.
One of the things we have to do is realize we’re all in it together. Sometimes we actually feel like one solution is the only answer, and someone else thinks their solution is the only answer. The good news and the bad news is we need all the solutions, and we all have to recognize […]
