A Critical History
Food activism in the United States has followed two broad currents that are critical of the conventional food system. The first seeks to reform the system by improving wages, working conditions, and the environmental impact, and the second focuses on alternative methods of production, transportation, and marketing. Steve Striffler argues that neither of these approaches has been terribly successful in changing the conventional food system because they are quickly co-opted by profit seeking corporations. Meaningful change, says Striffler, will only come when we remove the profit motive from the food system, and build a new system based on human need.
