“Foodies” Should Be Into Much More Than Just Eating Good Food

June 24, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
A New York Times op-ed contributor explains why “foodies” need to be more than just people who are passionate about eating good food. In fact, he says, foodies should be aware of how their food is produced and how it impacts our world. Foodies should care that their food is real (not ”hyperprocessed”), healthy (as in “whole”), sustainably produced, affordable, and perhaps even prepared at home or communally. Foodies should support societal changes and government actions that help make good food more accessible to all people. To do that will of course affect “the whole system”, ultimately involving issues of justice, equality, rights, and enhanced democracy across the globe.
