Question description

Assignment: A Food System Analysis of the Food You Eat

The purpose of this assignment is to investigate and research where your food comes from using a food systems lens.

Food systems comprise all aspects of food production (the way the food is grown or raised; the way the food is harvested or slaughtered; and the way the food is processed, packaged, or otherwise prepared for consumer purchase) and food distribution (where and how the food is sold to consumers and how the food is transported).

  • The exercise is to keep a 3-day food system diary. I finished the diary and you need to write a 2 page single space reflection and it must based on the lectures I provided.

  • Consider the following as you trace your foods and as you write your reflection: What kinds of inputs (e.g., labor, energy, agricultural enhancement) might have contributed to the production of this food? What kind of environmental impacts might your food have had on the way? Based on this, what kind of health impacts might you anticipate for yourself individually and those in the community/proximity of where it is being produced?
  • Finally, in a 2 page single-spaced reflection, summarize what you found. Then describe what you learned from this exercise, considering the questions above. An informal yet professional tone is expected.

I already wrote one paragraph. I will upload food diary and my reflection later.
