The Unnatural Nature of Food.

Food in our society has an interesting journey from, as the expression goes, "farm to table." Unknown farmers and hard working, often migrant laborers pick the food, package it and load it into trucks, ships and trains. It arrives at the supermarket where the average consumer is disconnected with (and often indifferent to) how their food got to his or her table. This call for entry is for work documenting all aspects of food, from production to consumption — from studies of agrarian communities, practices and lifestyles to exploration of how fast food has affected our culture and everything in between.
