If you care about important issues such as addressing food safety and the right of consumers to purchase clean farm food, here’s something you can do to take action. The Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund is a non-profit organization comprised of farmers and consumers pooling their resources together to accomplish the following:
- protect the constitutional right of the nation’s family farms to processed and unprocessed foods to the consumer directly through any legal means
- protect the constitutional right of the consumer to have access to unprocessed and processed foods directly from family farms
- protect the nation’s family farms from harassment by federal, state, and local interference with food production and on-farm food processing
These actions will help protect the availability of healthy foods like meats, eggs, raw milk and produce, consumer choice, on-farm processing, sustainable farms, and direct-to-consumer distribution. It will also oppose the National Animal ID System, the use of GMOs (genetically modified organisms), and restrictions on direct sale of food.
Becoming aware and educating ourselves about the importance of where our food comes from and supporting measures and efforts to maintain a system that allows consumers the right to having access to clean food is more important than ever! Here’s a tragic story of a young girl who consumed tainted meat and is now paying the price for eating toxic, industrial food.
