Food in America – A Visual Explanation

A friend from Leadership Idaho Agriculture sent our class a link to this fantastic article explaining the progression of the food industry in the United States from the early 1920’s until now. Some maps are serious, describing the decline in the American farming workforce, while others are more lighthearted, detailing the density of Waffle Houses in the South. Combined, the maps show changing attitudes about food, where it comes from, and how it is consumed in our day. Enjoy!
