Abstract:

A social movement for a fair food system

“My grandmother told me the other day something I never knew … I was talking to her about us not wanting to compromise our family or our values in the whole process of growing vegetables but rather have everyone embrace it and enjoy the journey. She said, ‘That is why we never upsized and took our dairy to the next level. Why we stayed small when others went big. We didn’t earn as much but we wanted to keep our priorities on what mattered to us’ … I’m very thankful for my childhood. We’ve always wanted our own children to have the same freedom to grow and learn and embrace life. To love and be loved.”
