United States Of Sustainable Food

I am geeking out on this new series from Grist by Eve Andrews. Writing that we are in the midst of a dietary and environmental crisis, she looked for ways to get us out of the mess we find ourselves in. The solution? Andrews challenged herself to find someone in every state who is breaking the status quo when it comes to production, access to, and education about food – but in a way that is characteristic of, or addresses a particular need, in their home state.

Challenge accepted and she did it well. Throughout the process, she noted “the choices that each of these people are making in terms of how to produce food more sustainably. When there are so many problems, how do you pick which one to tackle first?” The article includes an infographic that allows you to click on each state to see answers to the question: How can we build a more sustainable American food system?

Spoiler alert as for Washington doing pizza right: It's all about Humble Pie.
