 What are Food Systems?

"The term food system encompasses every person and every process involved in growing, raising or making food, and getting it into your stomach – from farmers to fruit pickers to supermarket cashiers, or from flour mills to refrigerated trucks to neighbourhood composting facilities. The health of our food systems profoundly affects the health of our bodies, as well as the health of our environment, our economies and our culture" (UN Food Systems Summit).
