Zooey Deschanel for “The Farm Project”

“..And I think a big problem with the food system is it’s so broad, and people get removed from it and when your community is strong and together, you are investing in the thing that is in your backyard and the kids that are in you’re neighborhood and that’s what’s going to make us stronger.” — Zooey
