LOCAVORE BASICS

Beyond taste, a movement to diversify

Both authors of the [Star Tribune] Aug. 30 opinion piece "Eating from the Inner Circle / Does the local food movement make a difference?" seem to emphasize the cutesy aspects of the locavore movement, as when we shuttle off a busload of first-graders to an apple orchard and say, "Look, this is where apples are made!" rather than "These are the people who keep us alive, and healthy."

The authors fail to point out that as long as we all must eat, food will remain a matter of national and regional security. A food production system based in the industrialized monocultures of California's Central Valley, Mexico or Brazil is incredibly vulnerable to fluctuations in oil prices, as well as regional weather and disease patterns.

The locavore movement is about a lot more than nostalgia and "fresh and tasty": it's the food equivalent of asset diversification. Be they organic, free-range or caged, it's never a good idea to put all of your eggs in one basket.

We should do our darndest to feed ourselves.
