One of our fundamental needs is food production. Our current practices of production, distribution, and preparation contribute significant damage to the environment. There are options that can solve this dilemma, if we think it through. For example, home gardens, raw and seasonal foods, composting, minimal use of kitchen appliances, and eating low on the food chain.
