Planning for a Healthy, Sustainable Food System
By: Darrow VW
A number of health and planning organizations came together to define the Principles of a Health, Sustainable Food System. http://www.planning.org/nationalcenters/health/foodprinciples.htm My favorite part is “Meets our current food and nutrition needs without compromising the ability of the system to meet the needs of future generations.” I think it’s such clear way to define sustainability. Perhaps they could have gone further and said that it also “strengthens the ability of the system to meet the needs of future generations.” What do you agree with? What would you add to it?
