Where the Food Is

As living beings we have the responsibility to feed our bodies good nutritious food in order to sustain the life we have been given. Failure to properly feed the body leads to its degeneration into disabilities, sickness, suffering and death. If you do not feed your body it will depart from you, sooner, rather than later. Therefore, each one of us must know where to find the food we need in order to sustain our living bodies in a state of good vibrant health. Here is a list of websites that will help you to locate where the food is near to where you live so that you can get it for yourself and your family.

Here's also a listing of great resources to obtain organically-grown, wholesome food:
  1. Alternative Farming Systems Information Center, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)
  2. Farmers' Markets-- A national listing of farmers' markets.
  3. Local Harvest -- This Web site will help you find farmers' markets, family farms, and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area where you can buy produce, grass-fed meats, and many other goodies.
  4. Eat Well Guide: Wholesome Food from Healthy Animals -- The Eat Well Guide is a free online directory of sustainably raised meat, poultry, dairy, and eggs from farms, stores, restaurants, inns, and hotels, and online outlets in the United States and Canada.
  5. Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) -- CISA is dedicated to sustaining agriculture and promoting the products of small farms.
  6. FoodRoutes -- The FoodRoutes "Find Good Food" map can help you connect with local farmers to find the freshest, tastiest food possible. On their interactive map, you can find a listing for local farmers, CSA's, and markets near you.
