Connections between our food and the people that made it

These days, we're very conscious of where our food comes for nutritional reasons — but what about being conscious of the amount of labor that goes into every morsel of food? It surprises me that nutritional labels provide detailed breakdowns of the ingredients, but not of the story behind how much work and resources is required to produce it. I think for anyone who has grown their own food, there's also a deeper appreciation/ need to not waste any of it:)

What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

What are the underlying legal issues to sharing food? Are they relevant or not? Are people aware of these issues?

Thank you and excuse me for delaying to reply you on your comment, I would like to share my ideas on this challenge, but Sometimes I am afraid to lose my time by providing my ideas. No any motivation that I can get from you, I see that this platform is created for develop people from other continent out of Africa. I learned this from the three challenge past
