“When you have more than you need, build a longer table not a higher fence.”
According to an article in 2016, the effects of climate change on food production around the world could lead to more than 500,000 deaths by the year 2050. Climate related impacts on agriculture could lead to an overall global decline in food availability. We are headed into a world food crisis and the evidence is mounting. In the United States food insecurity is now recognized as a major health crisis. Research indicates that more than 42 million persons in America were food insecure in 2015., New Mexico residents most significantly impacted by food insecurity are senior citizens, low-income families and Native American populations. When healthy food becomes a luxury item for our citizens, it is time to address the current model of food production, processing and distribution that shape how we access and consume our food. “LONGER TABLE” asks interested artists in all media to address the myriad issues related to our nation’s food economy and the ramifications of our food policies in New Mexico.
