The Cost of Cheap Food

From the latest issue of Time magazine ... yet another reminder about the dangers of our current food system. Read the story here.

On a related note, check out the Eat Real Festival if you have time this weekend! Admission is free, although you'll need separate tickets for the Beer Shed (yay)!

"Founded in 2008, Eat Real Festival is a social venture created to inspire eaters to choose tasty, healthy, good food. Through a vibrant, local festival in Oakland, CA, and a focus on delicious and sustainable “street food,” Eat Real puts eaters in contact with the real people -- the farmers, chefs, and producers -- who make our food. Eat Real Festival will donate a percentage of its profit to several California organizations promoting access to healthy and affordable food, entrepreneurship and economic development."
