Marion Nestle | Advocacy for Healthier Food Systems: From Clicks to Occupy

From hunger to obesity to industrial agriculture, modern-day food systems have no lack of “wicked” problems involving social, economic, and political—as well as health—dimensions.   Although these problems present formidable challenges, advocates participating in today’s food movements can draw on the lessons learned from social movements of the past to define advocacy goals, targets, and methods; to engage allies; and to monitor progress.   These lessons can be used to improve the chance of success of current advocacy campaigns.
