A Great Post from Tom Philpott at Grist
I'm offering this Grist blog post about food and class up as it addresses some of my own concerns about the new wave of food mania hitting the US. I can't say enough how great I think it is that people are supporting local farmers, eating more seasonally, and paying attention to what goes in their mouths. But, I worry that it is only for a certain group of people at a certain income level. Good, healthy organic food should not just be for the elite, but it should be for everyone. (A point well-made in a discussion that followed an article summarizing the Local Food Summit this past winter.) Philpott addresses it again and so eloquently that I thought it worth sharing here.
