FORUM: Mapping our food

Save your group's results from the TASK: Map your food, e.g. a screenshot of your findings, a link to your map, or even an annotated photo of the labels you found on your food inline or as an attachment. Comment on your findings.

The following statements might help you. Do you agree or disagree?
  • We get our food from a global market – much of it comes from very far away.
  • We don't usually know exactly where our food came from, or how it was grown or processed or transported.
  • We rely heavily on government regulation, business responsibility, and the judicial system to ensure the safety of our food, because consumers usually don't have any knowledge of the specifics.
  • The global food system relies a lot on energy from fossil fuels and produces a lot of waste.
