I’m a food policy graduate student who wants to change the world, one piece of sustainable food at a time. I created this blog to be a resource for food policy and all things related to it. I want people to become more informed about our food system because change only occurs when enough people are pushed over the tipping point.
As the fantastic film Food, Inc. says, we are all casting our votes for how we want the food industry to be like each and every day with the foods we buy. I hope that some of the information here can help you become more informed about the decisions you make and what kind of impact those decisions can have.
“The irony is that the average consumer does not feel very powerful. They think that they are the recipients of whatever industry has put there for them to consume. Trust me, it’s the exact opposite. Those businesses spend billions of dollars to tally our votes. When we run an item past the supermarket scanner, we’re voting.” Gary Hirshberg of Stonyfield Farm
