I have learned that the food system is much more complicated than I originally knew. I understood that there were food inequalities, but I was not aware of the mass scale that it effects people in their daily lives. I have learned about food deserts, and how MAP and community gardens are trying to change this, and bring produce and healthy foods to these areas.
Questions I ask food producers are:
Are your products organically grown?
Are they sustainably farmer?
Are you certified organic?
Where is your farm located?
Do you feel farm shares?
What do you grow on your farm in terms of produce?
I want to know what they do to the food and I don’t want to assume something that might not be true. ~Marie
