The Societal Ramifications & Consequences of the Making and Taking of Food
This site dedicated to the matters of food above and beyond the mere satiation of flavors on one's palette; but rather the ramifications to society from the consequences of how its' production, distribution, and nutrition affect living systems. How we sow, reap, harvest, legislate and base our economic systems on food is key to how we ultimately treat each other and the Earth.

The Curse of Poverty has no Justification in Our Age - Martin Luther King
“The curse of poverty has no justification in our age. It is socially as cruel and blind as the practice of cannibalism at the dawn of civilization, when men ate each other because they had not learned to take food from the soil or to consume the abundant animal life around them. The time has come for us to civilize ourselves by the total direct and immediate abolition of poverty.” (Martin Luther King Jr. 1961)
