Closing thoughts from the movie Food, inc.

  • When you go to the supermarket, choose foods that are in season.
  • Buy foods that are organic.
  • Know what’s in your food. Read labels.
  • The average meal travels 1500 miles from the farm to the supermarket. Buy foods that are grown locally.
  • Shop at farmer’s markets.
  • Plant a garden (even a small one).
  • Cook a meal with your family and eat together.
  • Everyone has a right to healthy food. Make sure your farmer’s market takes food stamps.
  • Ask your school board to provide healthy school lunches.
  • The FDA and USDA are supposed to protect you and your family. Tell Congress to enforce food safety standards and re-introduce Kevin’s Law.
  • If you say grace, ask for food that will keep us, and the planet healthy.
