Vote With Your Fork
Greetings Conway Locally Grown Community!
It’s election day, and as members of a democratic society we have the privilege of voting for our leaders, but filling out a ballot is not the only way we vote. We vote every day with the decisions we make on how to spend our time, energy, and money. I would like to remind everyone today that local food is nonpartisan. Fresh, natural, and wholesome food does not lean to the left, right, or any other direction, but it does support our right to good health, our right to a clean environment, and our right to make a living for ourselves producing honest, sustainable food. Remember that when you support Conway Locally Grown, you are voting for an alternative food system that increases the quality of life in central Arkansas. If I don’t inspire you, here’s an old article by Michael Pollan on “Voting With Your Fork”
The market closes tonight at 10pm. Go to conway.locallygrown.net/market to place your VOTE. Remember to hit the checkout button when you are done, and you will receive a confirmation email when your order is placed.
Have a great day!
