Food is political; I repeat it regularly.  Whether it is the origin of food, the growing method, the harvesting practice or the politics of the person preparing it.  How you spend your money affects both the availability of the variety, the acceptability of the practices & the relative financial success of the corresponding farmers, vendors & restaurants.  If you don’t support a food’s associated politics, don’t lend it your financial support –regardless of how good it tastes.  Food is political.  It is a hot potato, and it matters because WHAT WE EAT MATTERS.  This next Call is also political.  This is an opportunity to make space for matters to you.  Take a look…
