93% of people in the U.S. want GMO labeling, but the industry has fought tooth and nail to avoid GMO labeling to happen locally or nationally. We will get there, but until then we must do our homework.

I hope to encourage my friends in the affordable housing field to not only allow residents to plant gardens if they chose, but to encourage it. A garden of flowers and/or vegetables goes a long way to making any place feel like home.
I am going to share with you, a poem:
and cheese powder,
and ammonium sulfate,
and yellow number 5
Okay, it is not really a poem. Just a selection of ingredients you’ll find listed on the back of the store brand cheese-its box in my recycling bin...
It’s the dirty laundry of this food justice advocate. But I air these treason in favor inclusion and the prevention of burnout.
