The one thing that the food movement could use in order to really succeed is some level of cohesion. We see advocacy groups bonding together and coalitions; a lot of like-minded people bonded with like-minded people. I think in order to get the systemic change we’re looking for and really to get out to the mainstream, there needs to be a little more cohesion within the groups and who we reach out to, and how we work together and how we can kind of leverage that power. But we always know that there is a top level that has to be done, which is better regulations that really bring the bottom up and make sure that people can’t really exploit the food system in the way they do today. The oversight of food is really fragmented. There are so many agencies responsible for little pieces that it leaves lots of cracks in between, and as a result, it’s really difficult for us to actually get these kinds of fundamental changes in our food system because it is so fragmented.
