Food literacy entails understanding the systems through which food progresses from soil to table and back to soil: how food is grown, processed, transported, acquired, prepared, and consumed, and how waste is managed. It includes recognizing the impacts on individuals, communities, and the natural world of our food-related decisions and actions. It nurtures appreciation of the intricate webs of relationship that bind all of life and link food, culture, health, and the environment. Food literacy promotes the knowledge, values, and skills that enable effective action on behalf of healthy people and resilient communities in harmony with nature.
