NPR on Food Shortages and Nutrition

NPR weighs in on the food situation around the world today. And not surprisingly, America has a few things to work on. Who should we emulate? Well, perhaps Denmark.

If you want to understand the major issues we have with the world food system, just ask Max Lawson, member of Oxfam an anti-poverty nonprofit located in England.

“Basically, if you arrive from Mars and design a food system, you probably couldn’t design a worse one than what we have today on Earth,” Oxfam’s Max Lawson tells The Salt. “There is enough food overall in the world to feed everyone. But 900 million people still don’t have enough to eat, and 1 billion people are obese. It’s a crazy situation.”

The link to the full article is here. For those of you interested, I suggest it as a great mid-morning read!
