When dining at a restaurant, do you ask the waiter/waitress questions about the ingredients used?
I do often ask servers or, if I get the chance, chefs, where they're sourcing their food, especially the meat. I do it for two reasons: because I won't order meat from factory farms, and because I'm convinced that the more they get those questions, the more likely they are to spend more of food that has a defensible story behind it. If more of us did this, the meat would get better, fast. This is part of what is meant by "voting with your fork." It's true, it can get a little Portlandia, I admit it, but I'm willing to be annoying to move the needle.
