The meat and dairy industry’s relentless quest for profit is putting all of us at risk as enormous factory farms force cheap, health-threatening products into our grocery stores and onto our plates. It’s time to choose a better way.
Fixing our food system starts in our homes and communities, and it starts with simple choices. Think about where your food comes from: is it from a local ecological farm or some unknown corporate factory farm? Think about how much meat you eat: could you eat less, or none at all? Every step we take to eat less meat, better meat, and more plants — and every time we talk about those choices with our communities and governments — grows the movement for a better food future.
Corporate agribusiness and factory farming have broken our food system, and staying silent only keeps us from fixing it. These corporations are destroying our climate, forests, rivers, and oceans only to provide low quality products that lack the nutrition our bodies need. To create the healthy future our children deserve, it’s time for a change.
