We’re especially looking for interviews with
small-scale farmers, comparing and contrasting
different systems and feasibility.
*How people eat, how different cultures approach food
preparation and consumption
*Profiles and/or analysis of different sectors of food
workers, particularly migrant/immigrant labor

and problems
