Global Food Supply

Our current global food supply system doesn’t work. It is a complicated and politicized system that determines who has enough to eat, when, where, what, and why. Yet millions of people remain hungry in a world that has enough to feed them. Environmental exploitation destroys local ecosystems and disrupts local communities that pushes people into poverty; shifting consumer demands in wealthier countries have the power to destabilize entire agricultural regions in poorer ones; agricultural workers around the world are exploited, abused, underpaid, and enslaved—all to support a system that allows individuals in many countries—including the US—to go hungry while thousands of tons of food go to waste nearby. The agricultural ladder of production, storage, processing, distribution, sale, and consumption is complex, but it is worth challenging every level of abuse and exploitation to create a world where every individual and ecosystem has a chance to thrive. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
