There Are Few Thing More Important Than Real Food
Few things are more important today than Real Food. Dedicated people can have a positive, long-term impact on an entire community’s access to Real Food.
Along with improving access to Real Foods, there’s also a need for education.
In generations past, cooking skills were passed from parents to children, and taught in schools, but with the advent of processed foods, many lost these crucial survival skills, and the home education classes faded.
So, if one cannot cook, there is little chance of living a long and healthy life. Cooking Real Food is absolutely foundational for disease prevention and survival.
Fortunately, Organic, locally grown foods are becoming easier to obtain, between farmers markets, food hubs, and other community supported agriculture (CSA) venues.
An people always have the option of growing their own, and that’s ultimately the best option.
