Things we can do to change the system:

  • You can vote to change this system.  Three times a day.
  • Buy from companies that treat workers, animals, and the environment with respect!

    • choose foods that are in season.
    • Buy foods that are organic.
    • Know what’s in your food.

    • Plant a garden (even a small one).

  • Everyone has a right to healthy food.
    • Make sure your farmers’ market takes food stamps.
    • Ask your school board to provide healthy school lunches.
