Resourcing communities to create a healthier more sustainable future

Thinking Globally about Food

Leave a comment

It is often challenging enough to think about our local food systems.  Unfortunately, Globalization has occurred.  Our food system is a web of connections that have provided lots of unhealthy food being pushed on everyone from poor children to rich sports fans.  While any meaningful analysis of this situation is beyond the scope of our project it is still important that we become aware of food issues on the national and international level.  Fortunately we have many great digital storytellers out there.  A good place to start is with the BBC documentary on the Future of Food.  [Part 1]  [Part 2]  [Part 3

In the future we’ll provide links to other vaulable resources (films, books, articles, and websites). 

Examples:

Food Inc.

Botany of Desire

The Economics of Happiness
