Control the seeds, control the food supply. Are you concerned? You should be.

Today, four corporations — Bayer, Corteva, ChemChina and Limagrain — control more than 50% of the world's seeds. These staggering monopolies dominate the global food supply. Regulating plants and outlawing tradition
Major producers of genetically modified and bioengineered seeds, like Bayer and Corteva, strictly limit how farmers can use the varieties they sell. Usually, buyers must sign agreements that prohibit them from saving seeds from their crops to exchange or resow the following year.

Disingenuous Ways Dollar Stores Rip Off Shoppers

If you didn't know, now you know:

While dollar stores are super convenient to get things like paper goods, these stores often rip you off in ways you'd never imagine. Here are a few things to look out for and things to buy somewhere else. Buzz60's Johana Restrepo has more.

Nonprofit Grocery Store May Be A Solution for Food Desert In South Dallas

Dallas community leaders have tried to recruit a corporate grocery story to south Oak Cliff for years, to no avail. Now they're looking to replicate one-of-a-kind nonprofit store in Waco in their own backyard.

How's your 2021 health reset going?

01/18/2021

If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag, never gave up on the country he called home, despite all of the injustices and indignities it brought upon him.

Instead, he set out to realize his dream the most effective—and the most radical—way he knew how, by working with others to march, boycott, and sit in, recognizing that, as he said, “Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

The seeds of his courage, his discipline, his vision, and the resilience of all who joined with him took years to bear fruit. But they gave us the Civil Rights Act. The Voting Rights Act. And an American tradition of nonviolent resistance that has rung through the generations, as we saw this summer when Americans of all races echoed his example in standing up to declare that Black Lives Matter—no more but also no less.

On #MLKDay, we celebrate his life but we’re also called to live out his values through service of our own. Here are some ways you can get involved in your community: bideninaugural.org/day-of-service/

We’re in the middle of a tough chapter for our country, but #MLKDay should serve as a reminder that we have been through tough times before—and emerged from them stronger. But only because we never stopped believing in our democracy. Only because we never stopped working to perfect it. And only because, even in the face of intimidation, discrimination, and unimaginable suffering, we never stopped dreaming of a better day—and never stopped doing the long, hard, essential work of ushering it in.

Just one month ago, the Black Panther joined the ancestors. Brilliant young actor Chadwick Boseman died at age 43 of colon cancer, a disease that can be affected by what we eat. We have lost his talent forever, but we dedicate this, our first virtual Dallas VegFest, to Chadwick, with a pledge to improve our eating habits. Rest in peace, King T'Challa. 😢

FEED Oak Cliff dedicates the first virtual Dallas VegFest in memory of the Black Panther, himself. Less than one month ago, brilliant young actor Chadwick Boseman died at 43 of colon cancer. This is a disease that can be greatly affected by our diet. The Dallas VegFest seeks to inform and encourage all communities to seek healthier lifestyles through a variety of methods, especially via the consumption of quality fresh foods. Rest with the ancestors, Chadwick. We'll do better.

In honor of the GLORIOUS, "Notorious RBG," Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, we at FEED Oak Cliff and The Dallas VegFest share two of her quotes that drive our mission. Rest well, madam. We'll take it from here.

“Fight for the things that you care about. But do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”

In conjunction with one of our oldest partners Feed Oak Cliff, The Oak Cliff Veggie Project invites you to this our next food distribution at a brand new site 1734 Idaho zip code 75216. Saturday 10/31/2020 10am to 12noon. FOC was not able to have their event VegFest this year due to COVID. The event was virtual and a huge success. But we wanted to complete VegFest with a food distribution as we have done for the last 5 yrs with FOC. So here we are! Please come out and support FOC as they help OCVP open an additional site. And visit Feed Oak Cliff and The Oak Cliff Veggie Project here on facebook .
Because of the work of FEED Oak Cliff, I was honored & humbled yesterday to have Mayor Pro Tem Casey Thomas appoint me to lead the Grocery Store Task Force. The work begins!
See? Everyone recognizes this problem. But only some are willing to address it.
FEED Oak Cliff is about REAL grocery stores, not ubiquitous dollar stores. There should be a moratorium on them in the Southern Sector.
They learn the skills in prison. So why not put them to good use outside?
