"There's election results, and then there's the stuff that transcends political issues: like, will our food supply be safe for our children and their children? I encourage you to take a look at fooddeclaration.org, which aims to provide a clear statement of what kind of food policy is needed now. It is endorsed by a broad base of organizations, like Slow Food USA, and individuals with a long-established commitment to a healthier food and agriculture."
The issue of food safety and sustainability is one that's near and dear to my heart. I am quite passionate about spreading the message of the benefits of local foods.
I am now on a subcommittee of the Board of Directors of the Suffern Farmers Market and am happy to be serving to further this cause. Please check out www.fooddeclaration.org and endorse or comment on the declaration.
