Food Advocacy

Food advocacy uses sociological methods to question how & why social groups—families, institutions, governments--affect & are affected by systems of food production & consumption, how these systems affect the environment & human health, & how individuals & groups can influence & improve food systems. Today, interest in such issues is so widespread that efforts to improve food systems are considered by some to constitute a social movement.Food advocacy seeks to describe this movement, & to explore how individuals & groups can effect change in the food system.
