FOOD FOR THOUGHT. FUEL FOR CHANGE.

Our future is a Sustainable America.

THE ISSUE

Food is fuel. The consumption of food and fossil fuels are inextricably linked. Their production is nearing capacity, and shortages in both are a very real near term possibility. Without a concerted effort at all levels to separate the two—and to develop solutions to agricultural and energy shortcomings—we will be faced with a global crisis.

OUR GOAL

As daunting as the outlook is, there is hope on the horizon. Sustainable America’s goal is to bring together like-minded groups to foster awareness through open dialog and educational outreach, and act as a catalyst for the development and funding of innovative, entrepreneurial solutions to the impending food/fuel crisis.
Thinking and working together we can cultivate the change that fuels our future as a Sustainable America.
