Yesterday’s piece on salmonella shown a pretty negative shadow on our nation’s egg producing industry. The recent salmonella outbreak is a clear example of the downfalls of an out of control globalized food system. But the picture isn’t all grim. As a farm-to-fork trend further gains momentum across the nation, there’s certainly a light at the end of the tunnel. And egg co-ops are just another example of what happens when the community comes together in the name of food.
