This map goes a long way in showing how globalized our food chain has become and the potential for negative impact on the local food economy. Although half of the fruit that our class ate did come from Florida, it was not from Miami-Dade County. In fact, the sugarcane, orange juice, bananas, and lemons, which are all suitable to grow in Florida’s climate, were not even from Florida. Even the mango that was ironically bought at the farmer’s market, came from South America. According to reports from The Miami Herald in April, agriculture in Miami-Dade county is shrinking which is evident in our map. The report specifically states that over the past 20 years, Miami-Dade county hast lost over 45% of cropland due to foreign competition and development. This map corroborates that report on a smaller scale, taking the average college student’s dietary intake into account.
