One thought on “Events”

  1. I love the ‘Operation Food Desert Storm’ idea.

    To expand on it, perhaps we could collaborate with local family farms and/or farmers markets to make sure that the produce we are distributing is locally and organically grown by small family-owned businesses (supporting the local economy) rather than large factory farms that often use harmful GMOs and other harmful products.

    Also, we could hand out flyers with gardening tips – perhaps even have gardening classes, classes on how to recognize edible weeds (there are edible plants growing wildly all around – most people just don’t recognize them as edible) and start community gardens. Community gardens are huge in Houston. This would also empower individuals to control their own food supply and bring neighborhoods together in the spirit of self-sufficiency, which is really the nature of true freedom.

    Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a night. Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.
