In the United States, we are surrounded by messages that scream "bigger is better."  Supersized Big Gulps and Hummers abound. But is bigger really better when it comes to our food? Tom Philpott talks about the impact of food conglomerates on our food supply -- from local farmers to our own dining room tables.

Tom Philpott is the Co-Founder and Co-Director for Maverick Farms -- an educational, nonprofit farm that is dedicated to reconnecting local food networks. He is a staff writer for Grist, a website that covers environmental news and sustainability issues.
