I am a student, supporter, and future leader in sustainable agriculture. The disconnect between people and safe, healthy food gnaws at my peace of mind, and I have the money-hungry corporate powers to thank for that.
To be blunt, food in the United States sucks, and it is sucking the life out of Americans. The only good thing about the food system is its potential to change, to become something that supports sustainable methods that nourish not only the health of the people, but the health of the environment.
I see my family, friends, and community members settling for poor quality foods because they are cheaper. These processed, chemically modified remnants of whole foods take a drastic toll on our health. They are difficult to digest, give us little nutrition, and make us lathargic, overweight, and ill.
Stop supporting agricultural methods that harm us and the environment. Give our people, our animals, and our land the nourishment we all deserve, and in doing so, you will nurture an American people who are healthy, whole, and full of energy to face the challenges ahead of us.
Thank you for hearing my voice.
