Master Class 4:

The Intersection of Healthy Food and Happy People

Urban development in the United States has been intensely car-centric for decades and has made citizens more isolated from healthy, unprocessed food and from each other. Food councils in the United States are working to: improve access to healthy, affordable food; ensure environmentally responsible sourcing of food; pass local legislation permitting home-based restaurants and food manufacturing; create public spaces where people come for good food and socialize at the same time. Traditional practices of people gathering in public spaces, and shopping for unprocessed food in green markets continues in less affluent communities around the world. Rather than those communities emulating the United States, this is something that the United States could emulate.
