Foodies to the Rescue explores the multifaceted interactions between the environment and the American food system The food movement was born in the 1970s, a decade after the emergence of the environmental movement While environmentalists focused on issues such as industrial pollution, pesticides, and saving endangered species from extinction, foodies focused on spotting the newest culinary trends, discovering obscure foreign cuisines, sourcing the best ingredients, and scoring reservations at the hottest restaurants Over time, however, foodies turned their attention to matters connected with health, nutrition, and feeding the hungry and malnourished.It was in the 1990s that both the food and environmental movements finally began to focus on overlapping issues, such as organic farming, locally produced food, industrial farming, pollution of fresh water, and destruction of rainforests and habitats due to food production Foodies to the Rescue focuses on these areas of concern common between foodies and environmentalists and shows how this unexpected cooperation has begun to improve the quality of America s food supply, mitigate environmental degradation, decrease food waste, and help feed food insecure people in the United States and around the world.
