We are living in a time of intense interest in ethical eating. Organic. Vegetarianism. Anti-GMOs. Local. Fair trade. Free-range. We've all got a food cause these days. But the marriage of food and ethics is hardly something new.
In fact, the concern over the ethics of food creation, consumption and distribution is quite old, arguably as old as ethics themselves. Food connects us all, and because of that we have long been burdened with making sure that this connection is a fair and just one.
In this journal we explore the relationship between food and ethics, and why we should all be sure to leave some wheat in the corners of our fields.
9 And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. 10 And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19
