This Zoom session is from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST: Combining Scholarship and Activism: An Intergenerational Exchange. Information about the session and registration is HERE. Bob Gottlieb and I will address how to combine food policy scholarship and activism in discussion with two much younger colleagues, Ivonne Quiroz and Lo Anderson.
What fruits and vegetables do Americans eat? More charts from USDA
I love USDA’s charts of food and agriculture statistics because they tell most of the story at a glance.
These are based on USDA’s compilations of foods produced in the U.S. plus imports, less exports, divided by the total population.
The most commonly consumed vegetable? Potatoes by a long shot (think: French fries). Next comes tomatoes (pizza). Variety anyone?
How about fruit? Oranges, apples, bananas. Really, can’t we be more adventurous?
