Food, Dietetics, and Imperialism
The aim of this chapter is to expose the readers to the concept that we live in a system where food is produced for profit instead of meeting people’s nutrition and health needs and respecting the Earth.
I would like to thank and recognize the contribution of graduate students from Dominican University Fall 2017 Food and Social Justice class for their assistance in providing information for this paper, a proof again that seeking knowledge is always a collective activity, not a private property.
