Life in a Produce desert
Tom Karst of the Packer posted a question for the industry. “How can the U.S. produce industry increase opportunity for black Americans?” This was my reply “I will answer this with a question of my own. What is the produce industry going to do to bring fresh produce to the disadvantage arrears where Food deserts exists? Poor families can't afford fresh produce. When you get people loving to eat fresh produce, you get people that are excited about produce and want to make a career in fresh “
I believe this to be a question and the solution to this question. I don’t see many major retailers in disadvantage areas, mostly independents to help fill this void, but many more need to contribute. I also go on to say I don’t believe that there is systemic racism in this country, I believe it to be on an individual level. Lastly if we want to make our country better, lets have some real conversations about individual racism with real facts, not hype and to have that conversation all sides need to be listened to and also be heard. Here is my suggestion to start the conversation.
NO MORE BLACK, WHITE, BROWN
You want to end racism? Take color out of the description. ----- LIVES Matter. Unarmed.-------man, , ---------Cop. It’s about good people against bad people, nothing more, nothing less.
My Saffron Bay mangos will start shipping next week, retail and wholesale programs are available and I would appreciate the business.
