Food, Sustainability, Understanding


Beginning the class through the anthropological lens is extremely important in that it provides a very important context. It helps us understand that food is more than food. Its a signifier, a symbol of love, location, space, and the locale. When we talk about being sustainable and the power for sustainability to be inclusive of all, we should understand that food affects us all in different ways. If you seek to understand a person, then understand their food, and grow from that that. Think about how you can insert sustainability into an already existing lifestyle even if you aren’t familiar with it because we all love food.
