Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of the Plenty
Please register by no later than October 15, 2021.
The FSFE - Food Coalition will be hosting a book club featuring, “Closing the Food Gap: Resetting the Table in the Land of the Plenty,” by Mark Winne, October 19th - November 16th in Pagosa Springs. This book poses many questions about food access that aren’t typically part of the current conversation around food like: “In a time of rising rates of both diabetes and obesity, what can we do to make healthier foods available for everyone?”
A sample of book club discussion questions:
- What are your reactions to learning about the history of the food system and implications of the various programs and policies?
- Publisher’s Weekly says: “Winne concludes his tale in our present food-crazed era, giving voice to low-income shoppers and exploring where they fit in with such foodie discussions as local vs. organic.” Share your thoughts about the implications of income on the accessibility of nutrient dense local food.
- Do you make personal decisions such as forgoing something else in your budget in order to be able to make better food choices?
- What can we as an Archuleta Community do to make a difference?
- Other TBD
