“‘How do we change the food system?’ is a question that cannot be directly answered. We elect representatives who understand what’s wrong. We petition. We make noise. We don’t settle for the grudging, halting, sometimes downright stupid changes that government agencies make; rather we demand more. We don’t know the end but we push for progress. We don’t quit.
But ‘How do I change my relationship to food?’ is a question that you can answer yourself, now, in a continuing manner. We need both questions. But in a way the second one, the littler one, is much more powerful.”
-Mark Bittman, A Bone to Pick
Do you agree or disagree with Bittman’s opinion that the second question carries more weight than the first by creating direct change in our food systems? Why or why not? How would you answer the second question he poses?
I can’t wait to hear from you all!
Until Next Week… Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,
