HandPicked Nation believes real food is food your grandma would recognize as something good to eat. It lives in your farmers’ market, in your garden and at your local CSA. It hugs the exterior walls of your grocery store. It is not filled with additives to preserve its shelf life, if you don’t use it in a timely fashion, it rots. It is not as fast, cheap or convenient as industrial food, but it is better.
We believe a healthy discussion about real food is, well, healthy for us all and HandPicked Nation provides a place for that discussion. At HandPicked Nation, you can meet fascinating food folks, discover places to eat real food, read eminent authors, watch videos that entertain as much as they educate, and act upon important food issues we face today.
One of the most pressing of these issues is food transparency, especially in regards to genetically modified and engineered foods. We are just now understanding what price GM and GE foods will exact on our health and environment, and the forecast is far from pretty. As Just Label It says, “We have the right to know.” The right to know what is in our food, where it comes from and how it was raised. Knowledge is power and we cannot be kept in the dark any longer.
We are proud to join and support Just Label It in this fight for food labeling.
