Much of OCA’s work is focused on educating consumers and engaging them in the battle to protect and expand our organic food and agriculture system. But it’s also a battle to protect our health.
Never has that mission been more urgent than now. COVID-19 has taught us how valuable a healthy immune system is—and how a polluted environment and a highly processed, pesticide-contaminated industrial diet compromise our health and leave us vulnerable.
Our job would be easier if we could focus exclusively on food and agriculture. But unfortunately, the corporations that benefit from corrupting the food system, polluting our waterways and degrading our soil, also corrupt our political system.
As long as food and agriculture policy is written by Big Food and Big Ag, our food, our environment—and our health—will suffer.
Please help us keep the battle going.
