My Food has Traveled a few too Many Miles for Consumption 2 Abstract After looking over the requirements of this assignment, I realized how completely oblivious I am. I have never really given a second thought to where the foods I buy at the grocery store are coming from. I am completely unaware of what I am really feeding my children. I guess I have been living a somewhat blissfully ignorant existence. What an eye opener! Tonight’s dinner was herded off the shelves at my local Kroger’s. Kroger’s is about 1 mile down the street. Wal-mart is about 5 miles away. I felt like I was partly doing my civic duty by not wasting the extra gas for the convenience and substantially lower prices at Wal-Mart. But now I realize my efforts were in vein. There is an Amish food store about 2 miles away that I think I will start shopping at now. The menu tonight consisted of steak fajitas and rice. I whipped out the packaging from the trash to find the recently required COOL label displaying the country of origin. The steak was a product of the USA. That’s it. Not sure exactly WHERE, but at least it is somewhere on the continent. The prepackaged saffron rice was equally evasive; simply stating it was a Product of Mexico.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
