We're often told we should "vote with our forks" to respond to the plethora of issues in our food system.
Want to support local sustainable farming? Shop at a farmer's market!
Against the heavy use of pesticides and herbicides? Buy organic food!
Want to support income generation in developing countries? Choose fair trade!
These practices have proven to be powerful and are PART of the solution. But it's time to vote with our fork AND vote with our vote. Eat the Vote aims to create a community of citizens who want change in our food system starting on our own plates and shopping carts, but extended to our ballots.
Join Eat the Vote in ensuring politicians from your local city council to the President of the United States have a coherent food policy that strengthens our local food systems for the health, wealth and social well being of our communities.
