The market is no longer the end of the story.
But the new reality is that we’re starting to see the fruits of a massive food revolution in America, according to a report released by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) last week.
The NAHB report shows that the number of people with access to affordable and nutritious foods has doubled in the last 10 years.
“It’s become the norm,” said the report’s lead author, Chris Lacey.
“Food is becoming the first and second most consumed product in the home.”
Lacey said that when it comes to how Americans spend their money, the trend toward convenience has been dramatic.
“People want to get groceries,” Lacey explained.
“They want to do laundry, cook, or do the dishes themselves.
They’re going to the store and ordering from that store, and the food is going to arrive to them in a few minutes.
They’ve made the shift from a home to a kitchen, and now they’ve moved onto the dining room table.”
Lacy also pointed out that Americans are moving more towards eating out.
This shift is driven by two factors.
First, consumers are now using more disposable items and less expensive and convenient foods.
“We’ve been through a really big shift in the past 10 years in terms of where we buy and how we spend our money,” Lacy said.
“What used to be a way to save on food is now being an important part of how we make money.”
The other big change is that the average American is living longer than ever before.
The average American lives just under seven years longer than in 2000.
Lacey told Wired that it’s now clear that the aging population is putting a strain on the food supply.
“There are two things going on: One, people are working longer hours,” Lary said.
Second, there’s a lot more work being done in terms to making food that people want to eat.
“Lary added that we can expect to see more people going to work to get food, and fewer working people going out to eat.
Lacy and his team are calling for changes to our food policy to create a more healthy food environment for all Americans. “
As we’ve seen in the United States, where the population has grown by 40% over the last decade, there is an increased likelihood of food insecurity,” Lathery said.

Lately, Lacey has been working on a project to help food producers transition to more sustainable farming practices, but there is a lot of work still to be done to help the country address food insecurity, Latherys report notes.
“I think the food sector has a lot to do with the issue of food security,” Lany said.
The National Association for Home Build, an industry group that represents the home building and construction industry, has already started taking action to address the food insecurity issue.
The association is pushing for greater investment in nutrition and health in schools and homes.
In a recent survey, more than 70% of respondents said that the food they buy should be healthy.
In the future, home-based grocery stores may also be opening more often to help fill the void left by the closure of grocery stores.
