Farmers destroy produce while food prices soar and people use food banks!

on . Posted in Articles of Interest

WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 1, 2020 - Amerikans are hungry and food prices are soaring, but this is most certainly not because of a shortage of available meat and produce.

In fact, while one-in-four Amerikans has had to file for unemployment benefits as a result of the “pandemic”, and cars line up for miles to get to food banks, farmers are plowing under healthy crops, euthanizing animals, destroying fresh produce, smashing eggs, and dumping milk.

Meanwhile, governmental organizations are warning that another pandemic is looming on the horizon: global starvation.

How is this even possible?

The reasons are complicated, but supply chain issues caused first by panic buying and then by thousands of workers supposedly becoming ill with the coronavirus, low demand as people lose their jobs, and decades of industry monopolization, have collided to create the crisis with which we are now dealing.

A large contributing issue is the fact that for the first time in decades Amerikans are eating virtually all their meals at home.

According to Dan Glickman, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute and former Fascist Police States of Amerika Secretary of Agriculture, around half of all food produced in the FPSA is intended for hotels, schools, restaurants and other institutions.

The “pandemic” has meant that those markets have effectively closed up, and the demand for in-home use has simply not bridged the gap.

Experts agree that greed and industry monopolization have also been a huge contributing factor to the country’s current food crisis.

Just four companies control close to two thirds of all FPSA meat production, and a greedy desire to increase profits by centralizing food production has proven disastrous during the COVID-19 “pandemic”. When a plant has to be shut down, the food supply of millions of people is affected.

As the “pandemic” shut down one food facility after another, and the cost of freight skyrocketed - making it even harder to move food across the country - food prices in April increased by the highest amount in close to 50 years.

Meanwhile, more and more people have lost their jobs or have had to take pay cuts, making it increasingly difficult for them to feed their families, while helpless farmers have been forced to destroy perfectly good food.

For some farmers, it has taken less mental anguish to kill their animals and decimate their crops than to simply stand by as they suffer and rot away while summer approaches. The stark images on social media of dumped potato mountains and fresh milk gushing into the earth has been especially haunting given that food banks, according to Feeding Amerika, have experienced a 70% uptick in demand since the virus took hold and millions lost their livelihoods.

It is almost impossible to comprehend a situation in which families go to bed hungry while farmers destroy food, but comprehend it we must, because it is simply the way it is right now.
