Daily Culinary Quote: Hunger is not debatable

“When there’s hunger you don’t share out your food, you just devour the weakest ones. This practice works among wolves, since it lets the healthiest and strongest individuals survive. But among sentient races, selection of that kind usually allows the biggest bastards to survive and dominate the rest.”

~ Andrzej Sapkowski (Baptism of Fire)

“Hunger is a people-made phenomenon, so the central issue is power: the power of those who make the decisions about what is grown and who, or what, it’s grown for.”

~ Frances Moore Lappé

“When a poor person dies of hunger it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.”

~ Mother Teresa

“Hunger is not debatable.”

~ Harry Hopkins

Daily Culinary Quote: The economics of hunger

“You have increasing poverty and increasing wealth. Fine food is one way to dispense with a lot of money… It’s understanding that our daily choices about food connect us to a worldwide economic system. And that economic system — not scarcity — creates worldwide hunger for millions of people.”

~ Frances Moore Lappé
