August is Food Month!

3 Aug

This month, our focus is going to be on food. And there are so manydifferent questions we can be asking:

Where is it coming from? Is long-distance shipping really worth it? And how does it stay fresh while being transported?
Where am I creating jobs by buying this product? Are these fair jobs? Could I support a local economy while buying this product?
Is it a natural product? What chemicals have been used in the process?
If it is a meat product, were these animals given hormones to give you a larger (and unnecessary) portion size?

There are a ton of questions worth asking while looking at food, regarding both its production and our consumption.
So get out there to your local food producers, and find out about the food you consume on a daily basis!
