You are what you eat! Food fuels us, heals us and brings people together. Yet there is another side to food, which is more political and complex than it appears. Nourishment, ritual, sustainability, economy, labour, culture, ecology, community, exploitation, identity, politics: food is not only a basic need, it is deeply intertwined with the majority of aspects in our lives — as individuals and communities. This issue of Foam Magazine looks at what we are made of, focusing on the ways food drives us apart, brings us together and moves us further — all at the same time.
