Civil Eats asks is +The Hunger Games a prophecy for our food future? Diana Donlon states that "we must educate ourselves about the connection between daily food choices and their climate ramifications" to avoid the dystopian future that the book presents.

"'Simply providing fruits and vegetables may not be enough if [they] don't meet the expectations of those people who are supposed to buy them,' Jonathan Blitstein, a research psychologist at Research Triangle Institute and lead author of the paper, tells +NPR's The Salt. In other words, low-income shoppers dislike wilted lettuce just as much as anyone else."
A study finds that low-income shoppers care about more than just cost and proximity to fresh produce — they also want choice and quality if they're going to buy it.

Do foodies care about workers?

"If it disturbs you that an estimated 79% of food-service workers don’t have paid sick days, 52% don’t receive health and safety training from their employers, 35% experience wage theft on a weekly basis, and 75% have never had an opportunity to apply for a better position, maybe it’s time to put down your fork and open your mouth." - +Sally Kohn 

In your opinion, how can eaters affect the lives of workers?

The +Washington Post gives us "5 so-called health foods" (like Vitamin Water, Reduced Fat Peanut butter, and baked chip) that you should avoid.

Any other examples that you've found where the food is labeled as healthy, but could actually be harmful?
Labels such as “low fat,” “high fiber” and “natural” can fool even the most sophisticated customers into believing what they’re buying is healthful.

Supporting Good, Clean, and Fair Food.
Introduction
Slow Food USA is part of a global, grassroots organization with supporters in over 150 countries who believe that food and farming should be sources of health and well being for everyone. Through international and national advocacy, local projects and bringing people together through the common language of food, Slow Food members and supporters are making it easier to access real food that is good for us, good for those who produce it and good for the planet. 

As a non-profit member-supported association, Slow Food was founded in 1989 to counter the rise of fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world. 

Slow Food USA’s network includes more than 250,000 supporters, 25,000 members and 225 chapters.
