Food connects us with nature. There is no other place where our intrinsic relationship with the living world is as clear. When we eat, our body transforms nature into people. Moreover, the production of nutritious food depends on healthy, functioning, biodiverse landscapes and ecosystems as well as humans' ability to co-operate live in concert with other living beings in nature – plants, animals, insects, and microorganisms. Food and its social, cultural and spiritual values are equally part of our nature. Finally, nutritious food keeps us healthy and enables us to respond to threats, pathogens and illness.
