Food: What Might be for Dinner?

April 24, 2024

What’s for dinner? Most of us think about this question every day—especially as we get hungry in the late afternoon. But we also might consider this question more broadly, from the viewpoint of our overall society. What decisions about food might we face as a people? This discussion guide looks both ahead and sometimes far afield as it encourages us to explore and develop some of the many different questions we face about our food, about what’s for dinner . . . or breakfast, snack, brunch or lunch. Some of the common concerns about our food that were important in developing all six of the policy possibilities in this guide, include what we’re able to eat; access issues such as hunger, malnourishment, and cost, and concerns over access/availability; the health/nutritional values of our food supply and how might they best be regulated. This discussion guide encourages participants to consider and explore  oncerns about where our food comes from and how it gets to our supermarkets, restaurants, and dinner tables, the cost of production and transit, and the environmental and economic impact on our way of life.
