Novella Carpenter says, "50% of people live in cities. In places like my neighbourhood, they're never going to be able to afford local, organic, sustainably raised food. We live in a society where supposedly you can vote with your fork, and you can change the system just by buying local food, but the thing is, if you look at our society, that's great for people who have money … but there are people who don't have access to ANY food. You look around here, it's a total food desert. It's like malt liquor is all that's available so that's what people are going to buy." ::
