Food is essential to all human life. It provides sustenance, has significant cultural and social meaning, and is a source of livelihood for people around the world. Since the beginning of time people have expressed themselves through food. Culturally, we can distinguish someone by the smells in their kitchens. Food embodies, quite literally, all that we are and all the potential in the universe. It is this very connectedness of all living beings that makes our food and the issue of food such a grand subject. Food is not merely something we put into our bodies to sustain us, it is a social, agricultural, spiritual, intellectual, and national expression of who we are and who we are becoming. Our relationship with food is intimate and life long
I chose this topic for personal reasons. I am the mother of two elementary school children who sometimes eat the hot lunch at school. I have eaten several times in my children's school cafeteria, and am disappointed and discouraged by the lack of nutritional food served and the hurried atmosphere of the school cafeteria. After researching our National School Lunch Program (NSLP), I have come to see how impactful, complex, and nuanced this program is and how this continues to affect our children and their future. Our NSLP is a political, social, and economic issue and it deserves our attention because of the future implications it has on our society
Someone once said, "You are what you eat." If we are to take this literally, we must understand the implications of what we decide to put into our bodies. These implications are wide ranging for our own personal health, but also for the health and welfare of the earth
