lots of buzz these days about “farm to fork”, and for good reason: fresher produce, lower carbon emissions in transport, supporting local farmers and even boosting the local economy with farmers markets (did you ever notice that burt’s bees is at every farmers market? ). furthermore, if you grow your own stuff you can even save a few bucks. even uncle sam used to think it was good idea and maybe that’s a “backyard to fork” movement we can all get behind.
but what we’ve noticed is that, despite all the farm to fork press, it appears that many people still fail at the “fork to mouth” part. check out diagram 1. this poor sap is spilling peas all over his shirt.
it’s sad to see food wasted like that. so we’re happy to propose our new “fork to mouth” initiative. check out figure 3 (figure 2 is top secret patent applied for process) for clear and concise directions on how to get that food where it belongs. .
but why stop at fork to mouth? we tried to dis-intermediate the fork entirely but “hand to mouth” had been used before and while “farm to mouth” sounded good, timmy said we should wash the vegetables first and “farm to sink to mouth” didn’t have quite the same ring to it as “farm to mouth”. so “fork to mouth” it is and, as always, we’re happy to be of service.
ps: “fork to eye “ should be avoided at all costs.
