    Why is it, some kvetch, that despite the growing awareness of the human and environmental
    damage caused by industrialized food production, fresh, nutritious food produced by sustainable
    practices is still the province of the relative few who can pay a premium for it; while the vast majority
    of people must settle for cheaper, highly-processed “pseudo” food produced in ways that pollute
    the environment, endanger workers, harm animals, and force farmers to “get big or get out?” Why,
    after so many years and so many millions in investment, philanthropic and otherwise, don’t we have
    a more just and sustainable food system? What else can we be doing to make the kind of change
    we know is needed to create a healthier, more equitable and sustainable food system for the
    future? One thing is certain; it will require all of us working together.
