More respect for food and ecological relationships could connect adequate, healthy consumption to sufficient, sustainable production.

The current food system is opaque with its huge fields of monocrops and confined animal feeding operations, elevators, complex transport systems, food technology plants, and source-obscuring distribution and retail outlets. This story of modern agriculture is tied to the adolescent-like assumption that economic growth will prevail.

Two-thirds of health care costs in Canada can now be attributed to chronic diseases associated with unhealthy eating. Furthermore, about one billion extra people could be fed globally if we applied the best current methods to reduce wasted food.

If we live in the context of dynamic stability rather than in servitude to economic growth, and adapt to live with enough food, then we can enhance our freedom to be mature people of awareness and satisfaction.
