Weekend reading: Transforming the US Food System
The Rockefeller Foundation has a new report out: Reset the Table: Meeting the Moment to Transform the U.S. Food System.
The report summarizes what Covid-19 has added to our dysfunctional food system. It proposes three goals:
- An integrated nutrition security system that treats access to healthy food as a right and embeds healthy food access as a core component of
health and education
- Reinvigorated regional systems as part of a better-balanced nationwide food chain that includes diverse, agile, and prosperous local and regional food chains alongside a robust national chain, designed to serve all communities from rural to urban.
- Building more equitable prosperity throughout the supply chain.
It summarizes all this in one graphic.
The challenge, of course, is how.
