Food is a necessity for every living thing. Until rather recently, food was grown and produced locally and brought to markets in urban areas. People are the only animals that transport food overseas in air conditioned holds and across miles in air conditioned trucks to be stored in grocery stores until purchased. While this system produces a great variety of processed and packaged foods and expands seasonal availability, it may surprise you to find out that it has become, for most people, the largest part of their energy and water consumption.
More to come!
