There are definitely a few good points that you highlight about America's food issues, Josh : scarcity (of good, healthy, food for certain populations these days), obesity, waste, lack of awareness of whats actually in our food…but I think the most important one you mention is our relationship with food. And this is a cultural problem, one that we pass down to our kids. In my opinion, we, Americans have a guilty abusive relationship with food. We binge, we starve, we over produce and over consume. We abuse and waste and we make so much money off of our food. Right now there are a lot of organic and healthy food movements and although it sounds great, I think a lot of it is just a part of a trend or fad. And, really, not everyone can afford it. Its a complicated issue and I don't really have a solution to offer but I think you are on the right track. It would be interesting to focus more on how to change our relationship with food starting with our portion sizes so that we aren't over consuming or throwing away perfectly good food.
