Food for Thought Kathleen Krull's matter-of-fact text anchors each spread of Supermarket, while information implanted in Melanie Hope Greenberg's compositions adds substance. For example, an opening spread says, ""It all begins on farms,"" while a U.S. map painted on the side of the ""Happy Farms"" barn says, ""Certain states are famous for certain foods: Iowa for popcorn, Vermont for maple syrup""; a billboard planted in the field notes the contributions of labor organizer C sar Chavez.
