The average food item travels 3000 miles from where it is grown to your plate. when the trucks stop.. the food will be gone very quickly.

Update 4: ideogenic.... just asked my wife randomly.."Honey, if I say great, what's the first thing you think of" ? and she said.."super", I said try again, "Great-Stuff", "Good" "Awesome" "Happy" ... the word great is forever connected to a breakfast... show more ideogenic....
