Natural Humanism believes in having healthy food through a food chain that is reliable, transparent and preferably local. Using locally produced products avoids the need for transporting food to wholesalers, distribution centres, supermarket chains and from there to the consumer’s home.
In line with the need to handle technology carefully, food should preferably be unsprayed, not genetically modified and with as few additive e-numbers and preservatives as possible. In addition, this kind of food should always be affordable.
Natural Humanists prefer to buy their food within the local community. Communities should be encouraged to source food locally as far as possible.
Natural Humanists prefer to grow some of their own food if they can, perhaps in collaboration with fellow residents of their local area, village or town. Local authorities should create the conditions for this to be possible. It is worth taking a fresh look at ideas such as the commons.
