#tbt to this beautiful array of fresh edible veggies lying in a Colorado Springs dumpster. 40% of all the food we create we throw away. That's far too large of a percentage when 1 in 6 families in Colorado Springs are food insecure. Help us change this by creating a more equitable food system in our city!

Did you know cauliflower scores as one of the highest on the Aggregate Nutrient Density Index, meaning it is a whole food with one of the highest amount of nutrients per calorie? Plus it’s high in potassium and vitamin c to promote skin health and boost our immune system and brain function. Not to mention it’s versatile texture means you can sub it for potatoes and rice...Who’s a cauliflower fan? 🤩

“What is the connection of #food to #climatechange ?” People are asking. Might seem obvious to the people in the industry, but surprisingly not to the majority.
.
Here’s a simple overview of the current #foodsystem. Let us help raise awareness and encourage #mindfulness as a player in the food system. 💭how can we change the way we produce, process, distribute, eat and dispose food to prepare for the #future? .
.
👉🏼 #collaboration between #stakeholders is the key. 💪🏻 .

Big thanks to @edible_dc for including 4P in the list of Great CSA's in the DC Area for our network of farmers! 🙌 Check out the 🔗 today in our bio.
We support traditional CSAs, and they are the best way to directly support local agriculture. As a food hub, we’re here to deliver fresh food to folks who aren’t able to make the traditional model work in their household and yet who want to support local farmers and makers.
Our network of growers is made up of 200+ local and regional family farms and cooperatives that align with our values for good food.
Tomorrow is #CSADay a celebration of local food and a call to action to support our farmers who make eating healthy, local food possible! 💪 🌿 We are grateful and inspired by our community of farmers, artisans, members, and local collaborators in the good food movement.

“(Thursday) - The man spoke: My garden is obedient to me the whole year,/ but it doesn’t work half as hard as I do. The slow plants/ feed themselves from the slow earth. The animals grow slowly/ like the plants that they eat. Let there be fertilizers and concentrates!/ And there were fertilizers and concentrates. And the cabbages/ and cows sped up their growth. And the man saw that it was good./ And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”
The quasi-universal onion⁣

Across the planet, onions are the second most important vegetable crop, after the tomato that is. When you scan across the globe's different cuisines, you quickly realise the near omni-presence of the onion in so many of the key bases that make up their most celebrated recipes. French cuisine: onions, carrots, celery & butter; Asian: onions, garlic & ginger; Indian: onions, spices & ghee; Cajun: onions, garlic & bell peppers.

I learnt all of this when I whizzed through @michael.pollan’s Cooked. In the last few years, as my interest in food & agriculture has deepened, I have devoured most his books. They are bursting at the seams with useful information that one can incorporate in one’s every day life. It’s little wonder that he has become one of the most respected & cherished science writers in the West.⁣

In Cooked, his ex-student, Samin Nosrat (@ciaosamin), teaches him how to cook ‘pot cooking’ (aka ‘Grandma cooking’ – my favourite kind of cooking 😜). She asserts that onions are crucial as they are the “invisible layer of deliciousness”. When Michael tries to rush the sweating of the onions one Sunday afternoon, she stresses to him that: “most people don’t cook their onions nearly long enough or slow enough. They try to rush it.” She recommends cooking them for at least “half an hour.” If this advice is followed, she hints that this may have big implications with regard to the depth & the kind of flavours that will arise in your final dish.

Samin believes that good cooking comes to down to 3 key attributes: patience, presence & practice. I look forward to trying to implement much of her advice in my everyday cooking. ⁣

By the way, if that wasn’t enough, onions also possess potent anti-microbial properties. This means that the more onions you use in your own culinary pursuits, the less likely your food will become contaminated, which means → less food waste & less sickness. Woohoo!

Harvest Day 39:⁣
2 kg red onions ⁣
Total ~$4⁣

I’m just a little excited & proud to be a part of the creative team behind this bold National billboard campaign we have with @jamieoliverlyfv & @jmofaustralia. We need to change our attitude and habits fast, for the sake of our children’s future and the health of our planet. ❤️
Did you know this sweet 🧡 potato would normally be considered unsellable? 20 Billion lbs of produce just like this potato are wasted every year. It impacts our climate, our environment and how much we pay in the grocery store. Reducing food waste is a huge part of Farming Hope and along with using @imperfectproduce sourced fruits & veggies 🥕we are also hosting evening of food and conversation on February 26th at @welcometomannys to watch “WASTED! The Story of Food Waste” the feature-length documentary produced by Anthony Bourdain and featuring other forward-thinking chefs, entrepreneurs, and leaders tackling food waste

Along with our partners @imperfectproduce @doordash and @replateyourmeal we’ll enjoy tapas happy hour, food waste panel and watch party. Check our the biolink for details & to secure your spot 🥕
So I was at the library yesterday and this book caught my eye. It was being featured on the new book shelf and I knew I had to have it. As a Master's of Public Policy candidate with an interest in all things food (food safety, food access, food rights, food politics etc.), this seemed like an important read.

@diginn is deeply committed to helping its farm partners experiment with new crops & growing practices👨🏻‍🌾👩🏾‍🌾. We spoke with @taylanzet @thelarbear about how the fast casual restaurants’ menu supports its farmers in creating whole-year, multi-crop plans. Link in bio to our biodiversity interview. #biodiversefood #foodtech
When talking about #regeneration, @farmerrishi offered this quote at our #FoodLeadersLab last week: “A problem cannot be solved with the same culture that created it.” When it comes to repairing our broken food system, it’s not enough to just change the mindset, we have to change the culture. We unpacked regenerative agriculture as a true paradigm shift in regards to how, as a culture, we consider ourselves in relationship with and as part of the world around us. 🌱♻️🌎 #thinkregeneratively
Next year, Just Food will be celebrating our 25th year as an organization — and we're proud to say that we've chosen to honor the legacy of our work since 1995 by growing, changing, and staying on the leading edge of the food justice movement.

Each week we connect you to high quality, local and regionally grown good food - but that’s not all. Our mission is to make good food accessible to all. Every 4P FOOD purchase helps strengthen the business of small sustainable farms and makers. Each purchase also helps us give back to the community. 🌿
For every 10 bags sold, 1 bag of food is donated to a local food bank to help feed families in need. We are working to building food equity at our weekly #FieldofGreensMarket held in collaboration with our non-profit partners @ymcadcfood and @natsacademy Together with your support, we are building good food communities. Learn more about how it all works in the link in our bio.
When an organization puts profits before people, that’s when capitalism takes an evil turn. Such is the case with our food system, which is “working as it should”, as Eric Holt-Gimenez (Director of Food First) puts it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⊗ Leafy Greens, in particular, are over-produced primarily in California and Mexico, then they sit in transit for days, traveling as much as 2000 miles to reach your table
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⊗ The workers in these locations don’t always have the most sanitary conditions, which is one reason why we saw E-coli outbreaks several times in 2018
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⊗ The distance between farms and tables plus a mix of unequal access and overpricing causes food insecurity
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It may be a 'working food system', but it doesn’t 'work' for us. We think this can change…it has to change.

What do you think?

Help! My living room is overflowing with pizzas!!!! 🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕🍕⁣

Another week, another one of those #BonusHauls. I seriously can’t believe how often I’m able to share these with you! 40 pizzas just sitting at the top of my local dumpster!⁣

Remember, the #BonusHauls are the perfect symbol of the modern, globalised, industrialised Food System. This is a system that unbelievably wastes between a THIRD and a HALF of all food produced on this planet!!⁣

This project is extreme in that I’m documenting my year on living on society’s excess, but, in a way, this is definitely not the most important aspect of this project. ⁣

It’s the #BonusHauls that are fundamentally crucial. This is my way of providing you tangible, visual evidence to the MONUMENTALLY large levels of waste that is being produced every single day across the richer cities of this world. Almost nothing is being done about this. Massive companies continue doing the same old rubbish, trying to greenwash us all into buying our way to sustainability. ⁣

I shared with you yesterday via a Story that I’ve downloaded a series of reports from leading UK food waste not-for-profit WRAP. The devil is in the detail with all these environmental academic reports. From experience, I know there’s always some dubious, crappy definition that an academic has conjured up to make sense of the complex world we inhabit. Once that definition is agreed upon, it’s extremely difficult to alter it, as it becomes the norm across these powerful institutions. Hence, you get global food waste taking places for decades on end. What I can promise is that I will try my best to unearth that definition, which is rigging the system in companies favour. I will report my investigations with you in April.⁣

If you have any friends, partners & family who care about the environment, society, nature & the planet, please do tag them in any of my posts to help spread the word about the ridiculous food waste that is occurring, so that we can put an end to this madness!⁣

9 days till seeding; I’m ready to bury my head in the soil once again. .
Last season was nerve wracking, it was my first real go of it; it’s safe to say I didn’t know very much, and I still don’t - but more than last time.
.
Honing my craft in the pursuit of mastery - that’s what excites me. I want to see what only an old farmer can see; I want to know Mother Nature, and do as she says.
.
I’m thankful this is my life. I’m thankful to be your farmer. .

【食 物 系 統 の Farm to Table Movement】
🙋🏻念慈:「近年多人討論左 Farm To Table Movement,其實搞邊科?」
👨🏻‍🌾Farm To Table「由農田直送到餐桌」,提倡進食由農田直接運送到餐桌嘅食物,節省左中間的市場、運輸或第三者,一般亦指進食時令及本地嘅食材,除左食材能夠新鮮啲,亦大大減低運送食材過程碳排放量,較符合環保原則。
Farm to Table係外國較盛行(始終外國地理環境唔同),但其實係香港亦有部分餐廳主打「農場直送」或「自家農田」,假日更有農墟由農場負責人直接售賣農作物,大家有興趣都可以了解多啲。

Peak Christmas harvest season has arrived! 🌟❄️⁣🎄⛄🎁⁣

It seems like the moment for intense festive harvesting is finally here. The manager of one of the supermarkets that supply one of my 3 local dumpsters has clearly come to the conclusion that “enough is enough, we must purge ourselves of all these superfluous festive goods”.⁣

That suits me just fine. As you know, I’m always on the lookout for extra resources. 140 napkins will last me a long time, more than one year I imagine. I've got a massive stock of these now. And then some awesome metal storage tins. I was kicking myself last week when @gracieljay pointed them out to me in the Story that I shared. I realised that they would have been perfect to store fruits & vegetables in the larder. Luckily for me, they chucked out more this week. The cherry on top was that they were like Russian dolls; the four smaller tins were hiding within the four larger ones. Love little surprises like that.⁣

As with any peak harvest, I will be dedicating extra time to harvesting this week. I fully expect that one supermarket in particular to get rid of all their excess stock. ⁣

Harvest Day 38:⁣
12 serviette packets ⁣
8 metal storage tins ⁣
Total ~$67⁣

💡O que mudará no setor de alimentos na próxima década ? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Por mais difícil que esta pergunta pareça, nós bem sabemos que os problemas e dores hoje vividos em nossa sociedade terão de ser resolvidos. E a comida - na forma que é produzida, distribuída, percebida e comunicada é pauta central nisso.
💡Hoje, certos sinais fracos de mudança ou comportamentos de nicho unem-se numa fragmentação nunca antes vista. E começam a mudar o rumo de algumas categorias e segmentos.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡Resultado? Marcas de startups pipocam no mundo e também no Brasil, - algumas com inovações e posicionamentos interessantes, outras como cópias dos lançamentos presentes em feiras como a @natprodexpo! (Aliás que acontece em Anaheim agora único de Março) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
💡 São muitas e distintas as apostas que estas marcas estão fazendo: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌍 Sustentabilidade do planeta, com fontes alternativas de proteínas vegetais e embalagens biodegradáveis ou reutilizáveis ( uma real tentativa de extermínio do plástico);
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🥬 Combate ao desperdício de alimentos ( entre produção e nossa casa 30% é jogado fora - aumentando a produção de CO2), ao fortalecer o produtor local e culturas de alimentos regionais. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📱Uso da tecnologia para tornar a produção e o alimento acessível a 9 bilhões de pessoas em 2050. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🤔Alguém duvida que o futuro é agora? E você o que tem feito para ficar mais próximo desta corrida na próxima década🏃🏾‍♂️🏃🏼‍♀️?? #futuro #futurefood #inovacao #foodinnovation #foodstartup #foodtech #foodsystem #foodacademy #trends #tendencias2019
Read the full quote from Thomas here: “You already have given me a place to believe in myself and mostly just get a feeling that I can do this, given me a chance and letting me see that i can do this, I’m not gonna let myself down or let anyone else down. This is my time to finally do something with my life.” 🥕
ACTIVIST SPOTLIGHT: This is Elizabeth Yeampierre — she’s a champion of the CLIMATE JUSTICE movement 🌎 Today she spoke to the Ann Arbor-Detroit community about OUR role in adapting to climate change in an equitable way.

Here are three quick takeaways I had as a privileged white dude:

1. We need more empathy 🤲🏽 Climate change already disproportionately affects people of color. Let’s recognize this and find ways in which we can support these communities.

2. We need to build more bridges 🌉 Rather than jumping blindly into a community, let’s develop partnerships to support the work that climate justice organizations are already doing; simply ask what we can do to help.

3. We are all leaders 👩🏽‍🦱 We need to know when to stand up and when to listen.

Elizabeth Yeampierre is the Executive Director of @UpRoseBrooklyn! ✊🏽 You can find out more about climate justice and all of her organization’s incredible work there!

If you live in the Metro Detroit area and would like to come to future lectures on topics related to food, sustainability, and equity — check out the FOOD LITERACY FOR ALL lecture series being put on at the U of M! 〽️ Feel free to reach out and I would be happy to send you a link with more details!

P.S. It’s FREE to attend!
this past fall we captured close to 700lbs of seasonally harvested ‘farmer seconds’ of carrots 🥕 and continue to establish a market for #uglyveg as it’s the perfect match for our slow simmered stock pots 💛 aren’t these gorgeous!!
Huge shout out to the Food Fight event this past Saturday! Thanks to the roughly 100 volunteers from Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield, the Pack Shack, and Girl Scouts of America, they packed over 30,000 meals! It is truly inspiring to see so many people volunteer their weekend for a great cause. We at Feed Communities are happy and proud to have gotten the chance to help distribute some of those 30,000 meals to our community.

What we eat affects the environment. 🍂
It is difficult to deal with the issue of sustainable agriculture in isolation from what we eat. 💡Animal food has a significantly greater impact on the environment than the majority of plant-based foods, so it is very important to consi- der how much meat, milk, eggs and fish we consume. 🥚
The current dietary habits of Swedes contribute greatly to the country’s greenhouse gas emissions: nearly two metric tons of CO2e per person per year. To produce the average Swedish diet, 0.34 hectares of arable land is needed per person, which is more than what is available per person globally (Röös, et al., 2015). About 70 percent of greenhouse gas emissions comes from the production of animal products. Therefore, decreasing animal product consumption in the world’s richer regions where consumption of animal products is high and has increased significantly over the last 20 years is an important step for reducing the environmental impact of agriculture (Swedish Board of Agriculture, 2012; Swedish Institute for the Ma- rine Environment, 2016). Reducing food wastage at consumer level is also important. 🍏

【食 物 系 統  の 營 養 流 失】
🕵🏻‍♀️念慈:「食物流失又關營養事?」
💁🏼食物流失唔單單係浪費食物,亦係代表營養流失。以鐵質為例,全球農作物鐵質含量係全球人口所需嘅7倍,但由於食物流失、浪費、餵飼家畜等原因,只有2倍嘅鐵質留底。即使係缺少一種營養素,亦可帶來嚴重健康影響及經濟損失,如: 治療缺鐵性貧血所需費用。對於部分低收入國家,營養流失為舒緩營養不良嘅問題帶來阻力。

The Christmas that never ends 🎁⛄🌟⁣🎄❄️⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I’m still getting familiar with my 3 local dumpsters & the 3 supermarkets that stock them for us urban harvesters.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
After Valentine’s Day on Thursday, I was hoping for some chocolate goodies. That wish hasn’t materialised. Yet. The reason I have to emphasise the “yet” is because there’s clearly a longer time lag between the dates that these seasonal events are being celebrated and when the excess goods end up in the refuse bin than what I initially had expected. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I just wasn’t expecting to still be harvesting festive goods on February 19th… But, who knows, perhaps there will still be festive hauls to be had in the upcoming weeks. Your guess truly is as good as mine! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In a way, that, for me, is one of the beauties of urban harvesting, one never, ever knows what one may come across during the day’s harvest. It keeps life interesting.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
On a side note, at this time of the year, one can only get these goods from the local dumpsters as they’re no longer available in store… So, I’ve had to guess the prices of many of these useful resources. $50 seems reasonable to me! If anybody has any objections to this monetary estimate, speak now or forever hold your peace.⁣⁣

Culuvating resilient food systems requires an understanding of the ecosystems in which we live. Taking cues from native plants helps us foster healthy agricultural spaces that work with our environment.

Getting to know the names of native plants is a great place to start! These beautiful side-oats grama (bouteloua curtipendula) are warm season, perennial grasses. Their unique seed spikes make them easy to identify, even in winter.

Eating out maybe the hardest part about trying the #eatlancet reference diet. Do you think the kitchen back there has a food scale? That seemed a bit #extra so I guesstimated. .🍲

雖然食物系統睇落好完整,但唔少食物同營養係收成後都會大大流失。根據FAO, 全球三分之一嘅食物可食用部分未能接觸消費者,大約每年130萬噸,主要為生果蔬菜。以低收入國家為例,由於基建較落後及資源短缺(如: 冷凍所需能源、包裝、交通設備),40%「食物流失」發生於收成後及加工階段,尤其是奶類製品。相反,於高低收入國家,40%「食物流失」則於零售及消費者層面,如: 家中、餐廳,買多左,食唔晒。

下次開餐時,除左打卡影相,不妨多諗諗餐盤以外嘅故事,對食物多一份尊重。

👊💫GRIT /'ɡrɪt/ noun👊💫 "Courage and resolve; strength of character." The power of #resolve is on my mind. I've been thinking about how hard it can be to keep going sometimes...In life, in business, and more specifically, when you have a mission that requires years to come to fruition...How do you continue forging forward when you are all alone? In a word: #grit.
Grit is not just #courage, which is basically bravery. Sure you need plenty of that to be a pioneer. But grit speaks to more than that. It speaks to to the heart of character. It speaks to an ability to weather criticism, loneliness, hardship...without losing focus. It speaks to an inner strength that propels you along when others would give up.
Someone who's come to illustrate grit to me is US Democratic Presidential Nominee and New Jersey Junior Senator #CoryBooker (@corybooker). I've been following his career for years, not only because his values resonate with me and I was deeply inspired by his attempt to empathise with the poor during his tenure at Newark City Council (and later as the city's Mayor), but also because his longtime Chief of Staff, Matt Klapper, was my class president at the UPenn and I remember him to be a principled, dedicated fellow always looking for an opportunity to help a classmate out.

Booker is also the first committed #vegan in history to run for such a major office (he's been a #vegetarian since the 90s & vegan since '14). He will no doubt be pilloried en masse for this lifestyle choice. Being vegan on top of being single, #AfricanAmerican, not from a major political dynasty, vocally @antiTrump...he is a different kind of candidate for sure. He is smart enough to know that he will be attacked on all sides, and relentlessly so.

The fact that he is putting his money where his mouth is and publicly declaring the link between #diet and #climatechange, between our broken #foodsystem and the #globalhealthcrisis, between elite moneyed interests and the consequences to the #urbanpoor, shows deep reserves of grit. The #planet needs people in her corner. So inspired that Booker is one of them.
Love,
Sonalie aka Green Queen
#LetterFromTheEditor
Data from the 2015-16 California Health Interview Survey indicate that food insecurity in San Francisco is increasing: 50% of low income residents surveyed in San Francisco reported food insecurity compared with 44% in 2013-14. This is why it's so important to create self-sustainability in meals and employment and not only provide free meals - there is much work to be done! 🥕

I’m spending the long weekend in Portland and staying at an adorable mini farm in Montaville just outside the city. So cool that the City of Portland’s zoning codes enable this type of neighborhood-scaled food production 🌱

A related statistic tells us that 60.9% of households whose major source of income was social assistance were food insecure (Stats Canada, 2014).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you ever been in this situation? Know someone who has?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s hard to believe that this is the reality for many families in Canada; about 40% of families that rely on social assistance to be exact. While many of us rarely go without specialty foods that we like, some families struggle just to keep the basics in their fridge.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Equal access to high-quality food is the answer. A new food system is needed that is based on local farms and production that meets demand rather than overproduction and wastage.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you think? Can we bring about this type of change?

A powerful and thought-provoking statement from @ellenmacarthurfoundation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the #zeroWaste #ShopLocal movement grows in the UK I think people are becoming more aware of what they are consuming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The problem is that the way we produce food today is not only extremely wasteful and damaging to the environment, but it is also causing serious health problems but I was shocked by the reports claim that "excessive use of pesticides, antibiotics in livestock farming, and poor management of fertilisers could lead to 5 million deaths a year globally by 2050⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

#tbt to our #uprootingracism in the #foodsystem training in DC last year! These photos are from @mightygreensdc, from the training we hosted at @commongoodcityfarm. This year, we will be hosting two trainings ON our farm - on Tues, May 14 and Fri, Oct 4. During these workshops we explore the ways racism permeates our food system, reflect on the roles we play in perpetuating or dismantling racism in the food system, and think collectively to develop concrete action plans to dismantle racism and other oppressions in the local food system. This program is designed for a multi-racial, multi-sector group of farmers and food justice activists committed to take action for an equitable food system. We accept applications on a rolling basis, so apply now! Application here: http://bit.ly/UprootingRacismSFF #soulfirefarm #foodjustice #foodsovereignty

It’s so unfortunate that healthy food is more expensive.....
If you think about it,
Long-term it’s cheaper.....
if you eat a healthy food you stay healthy and you spend less money on doctors and medication....
