That busy organization, Food and Water Watch, has produced a virtual shopping cart that lets you see where food comes from. Click on frozen cauliflower and learn that 75% of it is imported, mainly from Mexico. The details come from the group’s report, The Poisoned Fruit of American Trade Policy.
While you are on the site, you can play another game: find the factory farms in your state. And take a look at its other materials. The site is complicated but one easy way to navigate it is to click on the numbers under the main banner on the home page. This leads you to pages that list reports and other useful materials. This group is well worth knowing about if you are looking for facts about these issues.
Next public appearance
This is the rescheduling of the lecture I was supposed to give on October 10. The taxi driver went through red light at entrance to the Pulaski, was pulled over and found to be driving without a license. We never made it. The lecture is on food politics. It starts at 6:00. Free and open to the public. The Newark Museum is at 49 Washington Street. This time, I’ll take the PATH.
