  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    The vegetables and meat I purchase are organic, a local farmer delivers it at my house. Advantages: 1. I´m happy because our food is healthier, free of chemicals. 2. they deliver it at my house so I just order in advance what I need
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. How would you rather use this money?

    I would rather use that money on vacations or buying something that I really need
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?
