I hear stories about an ever expanding population
and the fear that there will not be enough food to feed them.
I hear stories of the wonder, the saving grace of GMO crops
and how we will not be able to feed the masses without them.
I live in an area surrounded by dairy and chicken farms; fields of GMO corn, canola, and soybeans.
yet I see hunger in my community.
In a land of plenty. In a land that lays claim to feeding the world
people go hungry every day.
You see the problem isn’t that there isn’t enough food,
but rather that it’s not accessible to those in need.
And the stories I hear… the stories being passed along are not about feeding the world
but rather stories of corporate greed, market share, and how to profit from the hunger… the desperation of others.
Corporations are making record profits
yet I see farmers who are struggling and afraid of losing their farms.
In a land of plenty I see people without enough to eat.
And I hear stories of hunger.
