Creating a genuine food movement that galvanizes the nation is an audacious goal, but reform is the most American thing we can do—so says Ricardo Salvador of the Union of Concerned Scientists. “There’s a deep truth about the food system that we all need to accept. The food system is skewed, and some ethnicities are more seriously impacted than others.” Referring to U.S. military campaigns that appropriated land from First Nations peoples, he gave a brief history of how the current food system is built on the theft of other people’s lands. “If you want to find poor, hungry, immiserated people, you can find them in reservations,” he said.
