Much of our food comes from local organic farmers. Some of it comes from regional sources. And a very small percentage comes from outside our region.

Ah, but then, organic foods are too expensive, I've been told.

Fried food tastes de-li-cious.
Doughnuts, biscuits, cakes, chips, yummy! And a quick and satisfying snack for the kids!
Oh, and sodas. We love sodas.
And food coloring on the pretty little cupcakes...
And gazillion of sugar, i.e high fructose corn syrup, in everything under the sun.
And dead animals full of hormones and antibiotics on our plates... oh, that atomic turkey for Thanksgiving: super-good!

Who cares everyone will die, including the little children? Let's keep eating crap, absolutely, even knowing it's not good for us. Wait, the government told us it's okay! It's okay because we can buy it at the supermarket which means it's got to be okay, right?
People are born with diabetes, hypothyroid, alzeimer! It's got nothing to do with food choices! Nothing at all. Give me another one of those doughnuts, will ya?...
