Food is a necessary component of life and the need to eat is the most basic and important of all human drives. The central place of food in our lives has made food one of the made focal points of human existence. How we grow, process, distribute and consume our food defines us as a society. The production of food changes landscapes, the distribution brings a variety of cultures into contact with one another, and what foods are consumed are often a cultural identifier. (3,3,0)
