With so many people living in cities, children (and adults!) often have no idea where their food comes from or how it is grown or raised. Establishing an intimate connection between you and your food lays the foundation for healthier eating and a healthier life. By understanding exactly how your food gets to your fork, you will understand better how your food choices affect your health, the environment, and the community. The old cliché “you are what you eat” can now be expanded to “the world is what people eat.” Every bite and drink you take has an impact on the planet.
