VITALIZING FOOD ~ RESOURCE GUIDE

An Evolving Solutions Guide for Ensuring
the 7 Core Needs of all Humans and Animals Are Met

The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.
— Ann Wigmore

Over 1 billion pounds of pesticides are used in the US each year and approximately 5.6 billion pounds are used worldwide. In many developing countries programs to control exposures are limited or non-existent.

 

This evolving Resource Guide builds on the Solutions Guide by focussing specifically on inspiring resources, initiatives and topics that are related to the 2nd Primary Task of Eco-Governance, which is to ensure the 7 Core Needs of all Humans and Animals are met in the shortest possible time through guaranteed access to:
 

  • Living Soil

  • Healthy Water

  • Vitalizing Food

  • Fresh Clean Air

  • Physical and Emotional Safety

  • Comfortable Shelter

  • The conditions and resources needed for all to realize their unique potential – in mutual enrichment with their communities and ecosystems.

Challenges to FOOD

Current Context

  • There is more than enough food produced in the world to feed everyone on the planet.[1]

  • As many as 829 million people worldwide go to bed hungry each night.[1]

  • 70 percent of the global food supply is produced by small-scale farmers, yet they are especially vulnerable to food insecurity – poverty and hunger are most acute among rural populations.[1] 

  • An estimated 14 million children under the age of five worldwide suffer from severe acute malnutrition.[1]

  • One-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally. This amounts to about 1.3 billion tons per year, worth approximately US$1 trillion.[2]

  • All the food produced but never eaten would be sufficient to feed two billion people. That's more than twice the number of undernourished people across the globe.[2]

  • In developing countries, 40% of losses occur at post-harvest and processing levels.[2]

  • In industrialized countries, more than 40% of losses happen at retail and consumer levels.[2]
