Food Justice

     We have previously spoken of “food justice“.  What is “food justice”?  It the “fundamental transformation” of food related activities in America to achieve some egalitarian vision of equality and environmentalism.  In other words, it will do for food what Marxism does to economies.

     Now, Michelle Obama has named “food justice” advocate Debra Eschmeyer as Executive Director of her “Let’s Move“, which has resulted in inedible school lunches and the ironic hashtag #ThanksMichelleObama.

“Eschmeyer was asked in an interview in May 2011 what her definition of ‘food justice’ is.

“‘I was an editor of “Food Justice” (the new book by Robert Gottlieb and Anupama Joshi) so I spent several years thinking about the definition,’ she said. ‘Food justice seeks to ensure that the benefits and risks of where, what, and how food is grown, produced, transported, distributed, accessed, and eaten are shared fairly.’

“‘It represents a transformation of the current food system, including but not limited to eliminating disparities and inequities,’ Eschmeyer added.”

     To see the culinary future that Michelle Obama and other “food justice” advocate envision will be imposed on us, one need to look no further than her own school lunch initiative.

     It is enough to make one nastalgic for Krusty Brand Imitation Gruel.
