Want to change the food system? Talk to the Moms.
Women still do the majority of food shopping in the U.S. Increasingly, taking care of the family food needs means providing healthier food. Processed food used to be a mother's friend, sold with the promise it was cheaper, would reduce labor, and save precious time. Turns out the processed food sales pitch hasn't delivered on its promises, and mothers all over the world are returning to good old fashioned "real food".

While we have a lot of helpful information to share with you, we feel like our first job is to listen and hear what you have to say. Lots of Moms have already contributed blogs on our website. While we do have expert knowledge to offer, we know there is a lot of "native wisdom" out there that is essential to solving the problems we face in our food system. And, you know your family better than anyone. So, please let us know what your needs are, and let us how we can help.
