Progressive Action for the Common Good Local Foods Initiative:
Our goal is to assist in the development of a healthy, safe, sustainable, local food supply for the Quad Cities.
You are what you eat; a popular saying takes on new meaning in our diets today. The food we eat has changed drastically in the last 30 years: Factory Farms, Genetically Modified Food ingredients, Cloned Animal Food ingredients, contaminated food, and toxins in imported foods. We face a daily challenge trying to ensure that the food that we eat and feed our family is safe, healthy, environmentally-friendly and supporting our local economy.
PACG is energized to announce its newest forum, the Local Foods Initiative Forum.
The Local Foods Initiative goal is to assist in the development of a healthy, safe, sustainable, local food supply for the Quad Cities.
Five components of the Local Foods Initiative will work to educate and move to action citizens, businesses and local government to pursue a local food supply.
