Food for Thought

Since I have been traveling around Chile and Argentina, I have become more aware about the types of food, fruits and vegetables that are available here. Items that I assumed would be everywhere are harder to find here than I thought, if at all.

This has got me thinking about how much I take for granted back home in Australia. It has also got me thinking about the journey of the food that we find in our supermarkets and how we too, take their availability for granted. How long do you think you could survive if all your local supermarkets were closed indefinitely; or if all the trucks transporting the products and produce stopped running?

Hit play below for Jeremy Loveday's poem, 'Food For The Future: Stand Up For Local Food Systems'. This thought provoking video will get you thinking more deeply about your food as well!
