Rainforest Action Network has declared today Occupy Our Food Supply
, a global day of action. Across the United States and the globe, people will be participating in various ways and joining food activists like Michael Pollan
, Annie and Willie Nelson, Woody Harrelson, Marion Nestle, and Robert Kenner of "Food, Inc." in the day of action.
The goal of Occupy Our Food Supply is that people who care will “come together to creatively confront corporate control of our food supply and take action to build, healthy, accessible food systems for all.”
If you can’t make it to an event, there are still ways you can participate in the movement from your own home, in your own kitchen. I bet if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’re already doing things that make you a participant in this movement like paying attention to where you food comes from, eating less (or no) meat, and supporting local farmers.
But, if you’re looking for a way, even a small way to participate today, here are seven things you can do to stand with the participants of Occupy Our Food Supply.
