THE LOCAL SUSTAINABLE FOOD CHAIN
THE BEST FOOD CHAIN FOR AMERICA
BY SARAH ISRAEL
CLASS 802
America has a lot of mouths to feed...
Which of michael Pollan's food chains would you chose to feed the u.s.?
I believe that the best food chain to feed America would be the
Local Sustainable Food Chain
; it gives consumers good health as well as a greener place to live and sense of independence
America has a large population. The tons of people in America need food, but how should they get it? What source should they use?
the local sustainable food chain supplies healthy, safe food for people to buy. unlike the industrial or industrial organic food chains, the animals and plants develop the way they'd do in nature! this ensures the best quality in our food.

no excess manure ending up in our drinking water or anywhere else it doesn't belong in!
But local food cost more!

it is more expensive than food at the grocery store.
however...

~its transportation
~its marketing/advertising

~the deterioration of the environment
~you health/ lifespan
you don't pay nearly as much when buying locally!
Choosing Local Sustainable is a...
For Your Food!
