  • Reflection Question
    Food Meet My Local Farmers
    When you know who produces your food, you are connecting personally to your complex regional food system. What are the advantages of knowing who produces your food and where it comes from? Do you think this might enable someone to advocate for a better quality of life for those who produce their food, both near and far?

    Absolutely. Knowing where your food is coming from, who produces it and how is crucial for people to start eating better and making more sustainable food choices
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    I think it's deeply rooted into their culture now and people just do not think they can eat meatless from time to time. It is just a manner of habit and educating people about the importance of reducing meat consumption
