Organic food should not be a food of privilege. Rather, people of all races, ethnicities, and socio-economic backgrounds deserve access to safe, nutritious food. All people living near or working on farms deserve safe drinking water, clean air, and uncontaminated land. Certified organic agriculture has a proven track record of protecting human and environmental health. Yet the price point for organic—or, in some cases, the fact that organic food is not available at local farms or retail outlets—creates inequity in our food system. While organic has seen tremendous growth over the last decade, the organic sector has yet to address how it will increase access to organic food in underserved communities.
