Michael Pollan calls eating the vote we make three times a day. Local food and organic food are among the fastest growing components of the retail food market. There is no question that many of us are interested in making food choices that support environmental sustainability. For many of us "eating local" seems like an easy and obvious way to "do the right thing" environmentally. What are some of the limitations of thinking about sustainability only in terms of "food miles?" What other factors might we consider? How do the concepts of food citizenship and food sovereignty help us to deepen the notion of sustainability?
