It is pretty remarkable to see the growing phenomenon surrounding the food industry right now. Everywhere you go people are thinking and eating differently, buying their food from different sources or growing it themselves, or they are at least talking about it. In magazines I read about slave labour tomatoes. On television I see shows advocating local celebrity-chefs. The Obama’s turned the historic White House rose garden into a vegetable patch! And now I read that the librarians at the UWSA Musagetes library have started a summer challenge to eat locally. Incredible.
It seems like now that I am aware of the REAL PROBLEM, it’s everywhere. I could not get away from it even if I tried. That is really a good thing, but it’s gotten me thinking… am I too late or am I just in time?
On one hand it would seem that the world is revolutionizing itself already. What does it need someone like me for? They are changing by themselves! On the other, obesity is still up. Fast food is still a more popular choice than the farmers market. So… maybe my help is needed after all. I would like to think so, and for the sake of this thesis, I am going to assume so. In fact I am getting excited about the possibilities!
Stay tuned for ideas to come.
