Hacking Sustainable Foodways
Thanks for visiting! This site is associated with ongoing events about food and sustainability organized by Spatula&Barcode (spatulaandbarcode.net). You're probably visiting because we connected somewhere like the PECS II or AFHVS-ASFS conferences or one of our #foodways projects. We're busy building a repeating loop of asking questions, running workshops/hackathons, and re-configuring what we do based on your responses, so thanks for contributing!

We understand that there is no single "sustainable" diet, and we see every meal as an opportunity to look at the complexities of this concept. Sustainable eating is a multi-layered problem that includes securing minimum standards for health and reducing impacts on the environment while still affording a just living for farmers and maintaining a healthy food system. Although there is a heated debate between different belief systems (e.g. organic, fair trade, minimalistic diets, or cultural preferences), there is no agreement on what constitutes a sustainable diet, or how to account for all the dimensions of sustainability. We value your engagement with the puzzle.

Feel free to answer all questions or just a few, and to offer quick phrases or longer responses.
