Yesterday I wrote alot of words about Food, Inc, but I was was so fixated on talking about the movie specifically that I forgot to mention what I think we should be doing. Luckily, Bridget said it for me in the comments:
I learned far more about how great food can taste from my neighbor who shared her csa food with us and THEN told us why she did it than i usually do from those who fixate on the negative.
There's tons of good reasons for eating locally and sustainably, and we don't need to be put in to a panic first. It's kind of like telling people about God: while some folks feel that you have to lead with the fire and brimstone, doesn't it make more sense to tell people—or, even better, show them—what great things God can do for us? On a smaller scale, eating good food will also make your life better. And hey, that it's better for the world around you too is just a bonus!
