A deeply human-centered perspective on the origins of America's food Where Am I Eating? bridges the gap between global
food producers and the American consumer, providing an insightful look at how our eating habits affect farmers and
fishermen around the world. Follow the author on his global quest to meet the workers that nurture, harvest, and hunt
our food, as he works alongside them loading lobster diving boats in Nicaragua, harvesting bananas in Costa Rica,
lugging cocoa beans in Ivory Coast with a modern-day slave, picking coffee beans in Colombia and hauling tomatoes in
Indiana. This new edition includes a study guide, a deeper explanation of the "glocal" concept, and advice for students
looking to become engaged as both local and global citizens. Arguing neither for nor against globalization, this book
simply explores the lives of those who feed us. Imports account for eighty-six percent of America's seafood, fifty
percent of its fresh fruit, and eighteen percent of its fresh vegetables. Where Am I Eating? examines the effects of
this reliance on those who supply the global food economy.* Learn more about the global producers that feed our nation,
and learn from their worldviews intensely connected to people and planet * Discover how food preferences and trends
affect the lives of farmers and fishermen * Catch a boots-on-the-ground glimpse of the daily lives of food producers on
four continents * Meet a modern-day slave and explore the blurred line between exploitation and opportunity * Observe
how the poorest producers fare in the global food economy This book takes a human-centered approach to food,
investigating the lives of the people at the other end of the global food economy, observing the hope and opportunity or
lack thereof that results from our reliance on imports. Where Am I Eating? is a touching, insightful, informative look
at the origins of our food.
