Congratulations to Amber G, the winner of a Bitty Mixed Produce Box from Door to Door Organics, for her inspired poem on Monday:
Cucumbers so crisp, tomatoes so sweet
I savor the taste of fresh local food
Nix pesticides and factory farmed meat
Wholesome diets do not hormones include
Visit a farm and pull carrots from soil
In order to better appreciate
The farmers that in the wee morn' hours toil
All to deliver fresh food to your plate
Meat must be slaughtered with methods humane
Love animals, ecosystem and me
A veggie sandwich is far from mundane
With apple, shaved fennel, yogurt and brie
Enjoy your food and take care of yourself
Amber will also have a chance to participate in Door to Door's Holiday Food Drive going on right now, which benefits the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
Cheers, and happy holidays.
