Hi! My name is Alicia, great to have you here! If you’re really concerned with battling hunger in your community, then you need to do more than just talk about it. Though the main goal of the CFA was to rally against oppressive companies that take advantage of their labor pool, it’s a fact that members also worry about making sure their neighbors all have enough food to eat. Whether we’re talking about rallies against Trader Joe’s, protests against companies like Monsanto trying to take out patents on fruits and vegetables, or other related concerns, the important thing is to speak up and be heard, to get active and be seen.
Here you will find many of those former activists all gathered together. These days, we write about the food industry and pretty much everything food related, from growing tips to information on how you can start your own farm to nutritional advice about foods which are either really good or really bad for you, and much more. If that sounds like the sort of information you’re looking for, then you’ve come to the right place. For everyone else, there are still informative articles and other things to browse through here, so you won’t be bored even if you don’t see what you’re looking for.
It’s actually kind of amazing that more people don’t know about how their food is processed in the United States. It’s almost criminal, really, that most consumers have no idea that mouse hairs, insect parts and other trash can be allowed into the food supply as long as it occurs on a very small scale. We aren’t really facing terrible food processing conditions like those that Upton Sinclair wrote about back in the day, but the steady improvements have only been made possible by people like us who speak up nice and loud when we see problems in the process.
