Eating local foods is a radical act! The decisions we make about food have personal and global repercussions. In this first salon, a roundtable discussion, we will consider the full consequences of our national dietary habits, including health, poverty, crime, lifestyle, food safety, energy resources and biodiversity. That’s a pretty powerful tomato you’re eating!
