In any event, the food movement is going to continue to grow, and its vision will force a social and intellectual transformation of our society. The benefits of this transformation will be immense.” – Jonathan Latham
Last week, in an article titled “Food Liberation: Why the Food Movement Is Unstoppable,” Jonathan Latham, co-founder and executive director of the Bioscience Resource Project, laid out his theories about the food movement. One of the points he made, backed up by the New York Times, is that the food movement has created ‘complete paranoia” within the junk food industry:
Not long ago, The New York Times asserted that the center aisles of US supermarkets are being called "the morgue" because sales of junk food are crashing; meanwhile, an international consultant told Bloomberg magazine that "there's complete paranoia" at major food companies where food movements are being taken very seriously.
We just wrapped up our third-quarter fundraising. Once again, you came through. Donations of $5, $10, $15—they all added up, proving once again, that the grassroots food movement is powered by millions of people determined to take back our food movement from the degenerative corporations that have corrupted it.
Thanks to you, this movement is unstoppable. We are grateful beyond words.
