As individuals and communities, our social, environmental, and political values greatly influence our sense of the "good." In the context of food systems, we may favor certain agricultural production practices, culinary traditions, or labor policies. The 2016 Summit theme is an invitation for us to unpack the assumptions and biases that underpin our perspectives on how the food system should work.
