Letter: Is Walmart going socialist?
Published 11/11/2010, West Central Tribune
I see that one of my wife’s favorite stores has decided to take a new direction in its food purchasing ideas. In their decision-making process Walmart consulted with a number of suppliers, universities and non-government organizations to develop their goals. These included the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International, Rainforest Alliance, The Nature Conservancy, The Field to Market Alliance and the Environmental Defense Fund. It seems strange to me that you would ask these kinds of organizations for information on producing food. Not one of them has ever produced enough food to feed a city the size of Hancock, 900 people.Word count: 364
