Latin American countries such as Haiti, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Venezuela, Paraguay and Cuba have formed a coalition to provide food for all people of Latin America. The article “Food for all in Latin America” by anthropologist Ana Inés Heras goes on to document the movement called “Pro Huerta.” It is currently feeding three million people in Argentina alone. The plan is to show participants how to grow a garden, work on a farm, do planting and harvesting and also recycling. The article goes on to show that during the last seven years “Pro Huerta” has been sharing their model with these Latin American countries.
I believe it is a great teaching method for these people. It teaches them to be self – sufficient and have control over their land and water. It is important that each country contributes what they can to the collaborative efforts. The different countries have in effect become a large community. Working together can eliminate shortages in the region and teach Latin Americans how to help each other. By studying the eating habits of the Latin American people, anthropologists can see who has access to food and how it relates to the environment.
