Sometimes we forget what the food world looks like outside of Local Roots -- maybe we’re just in denial of the fact that it can be so untrustworthy at times. It’s important to give ourselves a reality check and to make sure we’re paying attention to where our food is coming from.
From large grocery chains selling products that contain harmful toxins, to imported foods falsely labeling their produce as organic, to the unjust treatment of workers at all stages of the food system, it’s more important than ever to know your food.
But despite all of this, we are true optimists. That means that when something makes us feel sad, we know it's a sign that there's room for improvement.
