Everywhere you look, food is in the news.
For some of you, this may be the first time you’ve ever been confronted with empty shelves in food stores.
For others, you may have caught your first real glimpse into the unsafe, unjust and downright horrific conditions endured by slaughterhouse workers—and the total disregard Big Meat corporations have for the safety and well being of the people on whose backs they’ve built huge profits.
For many, COVID-19 has forced a renewed commitment to taking back control of their own health . . . to connecting the dots between nutrient-rich, pesticide-free organic food and a strong immune system.
However the crisis has affected your personal relationship with food, this much is clear: COVID-19 has shown that our highly centralized industrial food system—especially factory farm meat production—can’t weather a crisis without experiencing major breaks in its supply chain.
We’ve got the attention right now of consumers, media and Congress. That's a huge opportunity.
But a lot of what we’re able to do will depend on our ability to ride out this immediate financial crisis.
We need your support now more than ever.
