Tomato Tomato Closes
As their 2017 CSA came to a close, Tomato Tomato made the difficult decision to end their run as Omaha’s authority on local sourcing. Owners Mike and Krisi Kult have worked diligently to organize local growers and provide access to sustainably, ethically sourced meat, dairy products, and produce for those seeking food outside the factory farm. With accolades and nominations for Food Day Hero, Best of Omaha, and the gratitude of the growers, Tomato Tomato is going out a hero, with many thanks from those who care about the family farm.

Clean it up, Tyson
Local sustainability activists are planning a rally this Thursday, November 30th at the Tyson plant as part of the national Clean it up, Tyson campaign. The efforts are designed to highlight the unsustainable practices Tyson employs, both in the treatment of animals and the planet. Armed with over a thousand signatures, the rally is not intended to harass, but to underscore Tyson’s power to facilitate change in the industry. The company is in a unique position to set a standard for sustainability, and attendees are hopeful that they will be heard. For more information, follow https://www.facebook.com/CleanItUpTysonOmaha/
