The Real Food Project Mission Statement:

Please read the following statement on the need for pure, fresh, unadulterated food on our plates:
Fruits and vegetables are available only in a few varieties compared to the last 2000 years, because promoting a few choices is more profitable than reintroducing local and heirloom selections to grocery stores.
Our food is contaminated.
It is often poor quality in order to maximize profit and minimize health damage to the consumer. Restaurant food often is laced with salt, fat and sugar. It often makes us and our children sick.
We deserve a change and so does our planet.
We ask our readers to pay attention to labels and demand more flavorful varieties of vegetables and fruits from their grocery. We would not condemn merchants who offer local varieties.
We ask USDA to step up pressure on corporate food giants to give back a little of their mono-cultured earnings to reintroduce as many products of heirloom varieties as possible. We encourage adults and children to plant their own pot of tomato, chili or basil in their gardens or near their window.
We demand bread and pastry made without bleach, potassium bromate and other additives in our meals. We do not approve of vitamins and minerals in rice, pasta and flour because we want a choice when we purchase those items. We choose real food.
We demand the absence of sickening ingredients in food. We encourage research on the impact of plastic and artificial ingredients on humans and animals. We disapprove the use of genetically modified foods. We want these foods restricted or at least clearly labeled as such.
Through eating locally farmed vegetables and fruits, we promote the idea and feel of where we live, we taste and celebrate the abundance around us.
Real Food in our school lunchrooms.
Fresh, sustainable and organic foods -- these help support us and the planet, so it can recuperate and replenish after the century-long insult of industrialized farming.
School gardens to reintroduce real food to the population, starting with our children.
Families who cook together.
Families who eat together.
Basic cooking, sourcing and nutrition taught in all schools.
Companies that reward employees who make real food a priority.
Meat produced with dignity.
Sustainably caught fish and seafood.
One day without eating meat per week.
Multinational food conglomerates.
We are more obese as a nation than ever.
Obesity-related illness puts us and our economy at risk.
Our own frail humanity -- we're hard-wired to want fat, sugar and salt. But we don't have to eat it every time.
We can make the move, make the change to real food.
The only restriction we apply is that we do not publish recipes as every palate is different. Engage and live better.
