FEEDBACK: Emily, I am also from a rural town that faces similar issues, and I really appreciate the impulse, but I don’t think this is the way that change happens. It is likely not simply a case of not enough info. And even if it were, it is hard to get and send good and reliable info that people will trust. I can imagine that a smart billboard inside the grocery store displaying the nutritional value per dollar of food might be useful. At least the info would be at the right place at the right time. But I’ve actually never seen a formula like that. Can you make a dollar-driven nutritional plan? Are you familiar with soylent? (If not, google it.) Maybe vegetables are actually not cost effective? I think on a deeper level though, food is deeply social (soylent aside), and to change nutrition, you need to build community and foster cooperative education and the caring. I don’t mean to be discouraging. I am deeply in your corner here, but pushing in a somewhat different direction.
