Learn about where our food comes from and support sustainable and just farming practices. More and more of us want to know where our food comes from and how its production affects our health and our communities. We started this cause to create a forum for learning about our food and creating a more sustainable and just system of food production and consumption. 1. Food should be nutritious and accessible to all. 2. Farming should be sustainable and just.

Despite warnings for healthier diets from medical experts, Americans are getting more obese thanks to poor diets and lack of exercise. As this trend continues to head in an unhealthy direction, we need to take a step back and question the types of foods we eat.
