WTF Wednesday: The Price of Tomatoes was written for The Absence of Alternatives by Velva of Tomatoes on the Vine.
This article gives some insight into the workers that make it possible for produce to get to the grocery stores, bins, restaurants and our tables. I will go a step further and say by removing the humanity element and reducing them to slave like workers, the Food is being removed from our tables and replaced with empty insipid forms that lack essence and vitality.
I love tomatoes, they are the base for many of my family's meals, such as sauces, salads, soups, or completely on their own with a little seasoning and for that reason I search out my tomatoes elsewhere. I want them to taste like Food.
