It's about our past, present and future.
A story that's centered in why, how and what we eat.
WHY we eat is obvious - survival. HOW we eat is characterized by lifestyle choices. Home or out. Alone or with others. Familiar or unfamiliar places. But WHAT we eat is not just a personal choice, it's a derivative of political and economic climates. Climates that shape, seen or unseen, what appears in our kitchens and on our tables. Climates that polarize our relationship with food.
No more than a century ago our tables were GMO free, sustainable and seasonally sourced. No questions about why you couldn't eat strawberries year round and fewer doctor visits. Only prayers that Mother Earth would provide rain or shine, that pests would stay out of crops and scavengers out of the chicken coop. Seasons were celebrated and friendships forged around dining tables.
“Imagine if we had a food system that actually produced wholesome food. Imagine if it produced that food in a way that restored the land. Imagine if we could eat every meal knowing these few simple things: What it is we’re eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what it really cost. ” - Michael Pollen
