We are defined by the food we eat. Our choices around food can help build healthy equitable, and regenerative communities. Similarly, our choices around food can devastate our planet and our bodies. Most of us can choose either to nourish our organisms with wholesome food from the earth, or to poison on bodies with junk loaded with sugar, preservatives, and genetically modified ingredients. Food is Freedom. Food is Self Determination. Food is Security. Special thanks to my friend Gerardo Marin who helped me develop the language for this piece.
