First, we hope you and your family are healthy. Physically, above all.
But also we hope COVID-19 hasn’t created financial hardship and other anxiety-inducing conditions for you.
Our staff continues to lobby Congress. We continue to mobilize our networks to fight for healthy, pesticide-free, GMO-free, antibiotic-free food.
We continue to pursue legal action against corporations that mislead and defraud consumers.
But like you, we are concerned. We all personally know someone, either in our work family or our personal lives, who are fighting this illness . . . and fearful for their loved ones.
If anything, this pandemic has demonstrated how good nutrition and strong immune systems are to our personal health, and the health of the global public.
The connections between biodiversity, healthy soil biology, nutrient-dense food and our own health are becoming clearer with each passing day.
And who among us isn’t keenly aware of the need for food security—something that only strong local and regional food systems can provide?
We are determined to keep working, from our homes, while observing and complying with the best recommendations from the world’s best scientists.
With your support, we can continue the work that must be done to strengthen our food and farming system, and public health.
Please make a generous donation at this time, if you are able. And please stay safe.
