I'll leave you with this thought:
The United States is one of the leading industrial and agricultural countries in the world, but what price have we had to pay to claim that title? 70% of our diet is made up of processed food and we are ranked 37th in life expectancy globally (PBS News Hour) Our people don’t understand where their food comes and don’t know how to grow it for themselves. Our farmers have been forced to apply more chemicals and clear more land in order to earn a living on their farms, while the health of our soils, water, and air has been pushed to the wayside. We import food from all over the world instead of raising what we need to feed our own communities and economies. Maybe the Dominican Republic is just a little third-world island in the middle of nowhere, but when it comes to local food, we could learn a lesson or two.
