Have you ever wondered where the food you are eating comes from. Recently I watched the documentary "Food Inc." It is an eye-opening account of the food industry in present day America. This film documents how factory farms, fast food chains, use of pesticides, and genetically engineered food have led us, as a nation, down the road to an unsafe food system causing sickness, obesity, and horrible working conditions.
I personally think this is a very important issue. I am a big supporter of Buy Fresh Buy Local programs. I know this time of year for those of us who live in cold climate it is hard to buy locally grown produce but I think we all should make an effort to buy as much locally produced food as possible.
Here is a link to Food Inc. website. There is a petition you can sign to help the cause.
