Food good - All good?

Our entire existence is deeply rooted in what we eat every day - our food. A look at our diet reveals the close interconnectedness of humans, the animal and plant world and global resources.
Yet despite the great importance of our food, we live in a consumer culture in which appreciation for our livelihood and nutrition is often lacking. Instead, profit maximization and waste of resources dominate, and in light of our planet's crises, it is clear that our food needs radical changes that must leave no one behind.
