Are you passionate about real food? Do you want to do more than just change the way your family is eating?
Real food activism is important right now. If you haven’t heard, there have been several raids on coops and farms selling raw milk and raw milk products — even in states where such sales are legal. The raids were illegal, but they destroyed, in some cases, thousands of dollars of products, for no reason at all. The news S. 510 bill (which may be dead; we’ll have to wait and see) would severely restrict certain types of food sales and would increase the government’s authority to seize products if there “reason to believe it may be contaminated.” Which opens the door for more raw milk raids, since ‘all raw milk is contaminated, because it is raw.’
Clearly something needs to be done.
What can you do?
Join Weston A. Price Foundation (and attend local meetings).
Write blog posts.
Visit or help start a farmer’s market.
Avoid “regular” grocery stores as much as possible (vote with your dollars!)
Visit health food stores regularly.
Find and buy from a local farm (directly). Small plug, if you are in the Central Ohio area and want to join my farm buying group, send me an email!
This is important, everyone. We can’t let ourselves be bullied into thinking there is one right way to eat, and it’s how the U.S. government says. We can’t back down because people who don’t understand say we’re crazy.
How else do you participate in real food activism?
