I struggle with the debate over the cost of healthy food vs. fast food.  I struggle with the idea that there are food snobs out there that believe that “healthy food is expensive” is an excuse, instead of a reason.  Healthy food IS expensive. Cauliflower, a relatively unsexy vegetable, is currently $6 a head at the grocery.  Six dollars.  That is insane.  Asparagus, sure, but cauliflower? Really.  And cost aside, there really are places in this country where access to fresh food is limited by availability, transportation & a lack of knowledge or ability to prepare it if it were accessible.  So, instead of clever memes, can we just take a moment to talk about a culture that ignores hunger because it “doesn’t affect me”?  Do you have to have something to say about the culture outside your window? This Call is the perfect opportunity to let your work speak…
