Thinkin’ about food

leave a comment »

“Food security is not in the supermarket. It’s not in the government. It’s not at the emergency services division. True food security is the historical normalcy of packing it in during the abundant times, building that in-house larder, and resting easy knowing that our little ones are not dependent on next week’s farmers’ market or the electronic cashiers at the supermarket.”

“The average person is still under the aberrant delusion that food should be somebody else’s responsibility until I’m ready to eat it.”
