Welcome to Talking Food Systems – a CD compendium of new research on how Americans think about the food we eat, the way it is produced and delivered, and the policies that affect it. Also included are new applications materials, based on the research findings, that can help engage the public in understanding food policies, potential reforms and solutions to pressing problems. This CD was developed by the FrameWorks Institute for the W. K. Kellogg Foundation’s Food and Society Program. Standard rules governing citation and intellectual property usage apply.
