It boggles the mind to think that Starbucks (corporate office) uses an organic cater for office affairs, but yet what they offer in their stores is anything but organic and healthy. This proves to me that they are aware of the differences between healthy & unhealthy and disregard the health of their customers. Starbucks and food corporations in America should be encouraging healthy habits of their customers. Instead they use cheap ingredients and offer cheap food products that are unhealthy all in the name of bigger profits. They need to offer healthy alternatives to their customers. They know most people don't believe they have the power to change the food system. People do have the power to change the food system. Everytime they purchase food items that are unhealthy they are telling the food corporations they don't care. If consumers stop buying the unhealthy food items and buy healthy food items they are sending a message to the food corporations. This is our power. We need to use it. The food corporations then have two choices:
1. Give consumers what they want and stay in business.
2. Ignore consumers and go out of business.
Everybody buys food, so everybody can help change the food system.
