Pollan a Must-Read
Sunday’s New York Times Magazine entitled The Food Issue is rife with dialogue on the failures of the Western food system and what each of us can do about it. I worked in a glatt-kosher restaurant in NYC for two years and was thrilled to read the article on how different members of the movement are creating change in hopes of bringing humanely raised animals into the equation of mindful and spiritual eating.
Michael Pollan’s long-anticipated open letter to our next Farmer in Chief makes the strongest case yet for a shift away from a global, industrial food system. Pollan weaves the seemingly disparate issues of energy, healthcare and food sovereignty together beautifully – and most importantly, in a way that everyday people (even politicians!) can understand.
