“No we are not suddenly starving to death but we are slowly and surely malnourishing ourselves to death.” Will Powers believes that although America may not be experiencing third world poverty and starvation, the lack of access to naturally grown, sustainably harvested food has lead to increased health issues and as a result higher health care and social costs. Power’s business looked at the Recovery Act and started brainstorming how to reward sustainable food sources and promote green jobs. He tries to relate to President Obama by asking him, the first African American president to acknowledge his work as an African American farmer and to realize that government programming like food stamps is not going to solve the problem, but instead a fervent demand by legislators for food sources to go back to the good soil in which America’s first farms were based. The articles would critique Powers by asking, “are we malnourishing ourselves or are we still choyosing, despite exposure to produce, to choose the easier junk food alternative?” Growing power also has many established programs that aim to promote and encourage young generations to invest in the food issue and offers internships to those interested in green growth. Just because we throw these programs out there does that mean that people will come running? The concept of a food desert still struggles to gain academic clout but appears evident in many recent studies. Will Green Powers be able to attract the given attention necessary to recruit youth that will continue the sustainable fight in future when many of these youth have no concept of soil based production? Just because a call to action is initiated doesn’t mean a response will come. Green Powers is fighting an uphill battle against federal policies that all too easily succumb to the cheapest prices. It may but unjust that grocery stores have grape fruits that need to be saran wrapped, but until the demand by the general public for food rights, our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness continue to be in jeopardy because of programs that put a band aid on the issue.
