CMAP Go To 2040
The Go To 2040 section starting on page 141 titled “Promote Sustainable Local Food” starts out with the statement:
Food – like air, water and shelter – is a basic need. In addition to sustaining life and influencing health, food and the act of eating are part of our culture and everyday existence. Three times per day, we decide what to eat, often without consideration of how that food was produced or where it comes from. These daily decisions have consequences whether or not we are aware of them, and they directly shape the food industry that feeds us.
