1. Support the UOttawa Real Food Challenge

The Real Food Challenge (RFC) is a national, student-driven campaign to reshape our food economy. We are a network of students and youth at schools across the country, advocating for "real food" on our campuses and in our communities.

The impact
Collectively, colleges and universities across North America spend over $5 billion per year to feed their students. By working together to shift 20% of purchasing to Real Food, we will be funnelling $1 billion into the agriculture and supply chains we need for our future.

We have a goal of reaching 20% Real Food procurement by 2020.

Please show support for the Real Food Challenge at the University of Ottawa by signing below!

2. Feeding the homeless

All of the left over food from all restaurants, that is still edible, to be bispursed through local homeless shelters, and soup kitchens to feed all the people that the government forgot about.

I have worked in many fast food restaurants, and they throw away so much edible food at the end of the day. Then I go out and see people asking for money to get some food, when I just threw away enough food to feed him for a week, and it just hurts.

We have enough food to feed every person in this state, if we all just cared about each other a little more.

3. Sustainably Feeding the World

We the thirsty and hungry people of the world are waiting upon you to assist us. Because we are disabled, our voice is unheard. Please assist us with fresh water, natural supplements and most importantly training on how to sustainably feed ourselves supplied by our Super Heroes at Food Forestry Foundation.

4. Free Food Distribution Center at the Antioch New England Campus

Citizen's Supply is trying to establish a free food distribution center at the Antioch New England Campus so that anyone in Keene and the surrounding area can come to get something to eat.

Food is a right not a privilege! By signing here I state that I am in full support of this mission and would like to see a free food distribution center at Antioch New England!

5. Grocery Store to Feed a Strong Charleston Downtown Community

Whereas the BI-LO (Formerly Piggly Wiggly) Grocery Store on Meeting Street has been connected with the downtown Charleston community for over fifty years, benefitting from the patronage of the citizens of the city, obtaining the protection of the city's municipal services such as police and fire protection and has become a part of the community's collective experience and culture;

And further whereas the decision to close the store leaves the surrounding community and transit riders traveling on nearby bus routes who live in “food deserts” in North Charleston with no affordable alternative for grocery shopping within reasonable, walkable distance of their homes or public transit services. (No regular long haul CARTA route runs near the East Bay Street Harris Teeter, which is over a mile from the East Side of Charleston. Shoppers going home after work downtown can no longer find a grocery store near their route traveling North or West.)

And further whereas the Meeting Street BI-LO, combined with nearby multifamily and affordable housing, in combination with restaurants, gathering places, the Alley and employment at hotels within a block of the store created a walkable, sustainable urban environment for people in that area.

And further whereas a preliminary petition effort is needed to open a community discussion to refine and improve the approach to this issue, and with the understanding that this petition may be replaced with other petitions and proposals after a dialogue with the community is conducted.

6. Ban GMO foods and seeds

GMO's have harmed and threatens not only our environment, but also our people's and societies health. Thus they are in reality an enemy of the land and people. Seems many of our politicians perspectives and ideology aren't much better, as they continually take donations which ultimately secure their favoritism come legislation time, much like a simple bribe does.

~ GMO's food corruption has and is harming our people by complicating our health issues. This is basically chemical warfare that attacks our people so they can profit. Disrupting our health, domestic tranquility, and the general welfare of our nation. Many other countries have banned GMO's for this very reason, yet our politicians and judicial system continue to favor them over the people who are harmed by their actions.

Our US Constitution's article III, Section. 3, defines such actions as treasonous high crimes, abuse of authority, conduct unbecoming of an official, and a dereliction of duty to uphold their sworn oath of office.

The Constitution, Article II Section. 4.
The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Article III, Section. 3
~ Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

Article the eleventh... The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Article the twelfth... The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

These basic rights and laws are also reinforced in the bill of rights:

Amendment IX
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

Amendment X
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

"Each justice or judge of the United States shall take the following oath or affirmation before performing the duties of his office: “I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ___ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”"
Quoted source:

~ The charge of high crimes and misdemeanors covers allegations of misconduct peculiar to officials, such as Treason, perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming, and refusal to obey a lawful order.

1) The constitution clearly states that adhering to their Enemies is treason.
2) An Enemy is defined as: Something that harms or threatens someone or something.
3) GMO's are harming people while contributing to the manipulation our food sources for profit.
4) Many of our Congressional and several Judiciary officers are allowing them, thus aiding and abetting their use (A defined enemy of we the people), thus breaking their oath of office.
5) The charge of Treason and High Crimes includes abuse of authority, perjury of oath, dereliction of duty.

Amendment I
" Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Since many of our congressional members and Judges have aided and protected the use of GMO's. We can legally say that they're adhering, aiding, and comforting the enemy.
Thus this petition to the government for redress of "We the peoples" grievances is prudent to our health, and the safety of our posterity's future.

Anyone guilty of violating their sworn oath of office, abusing their authority, or by definition committing treason against "We the people" and our Constitution. Should be charged with, and convicted of, High crimes and treason against "We the people", and subsequently removed from their position(s) and office(s), without their salary for life or government benefits, immediately and forthwith.

7. Healthy Food Options in Frederick County Schools

Unhealthy school food has been a big problem for many years now and it has not gotten any better. Why can't we change that?

I want students to have healthier options in their schools so they can get the nutrition they need and so they don't fell hungry when they get home or even during class.

8. Support new Lidl Coney Hill

Provision of a replacement Lidl foodstore comprising 1,689 sqm sales area and
158 free car parking spaces; of which 9 will be disabled and 4 will be parent and child spaces.

A brand new LOF (Lidl of the Future) state-of-the-art design that responds to the site’s characteristics, context and local built environment.

With employment opportunities for up to 40 staff, the proposed scheme will have contemporary glazed elevations, an internal bakery, 2 external trolley bays, self-service checkouts and customer toilets with baby changing facilities.

Vehicle access for shoppers, staff and delivery vehicles will remain unaltered. The site is well served by public transport and is accessible by foot, car and by bike. Vehicle parking spaces provided are generously sized for better customer access. Pedestrian routes are provided through the site and cycle storage areas are provided to the rear of the external trolley boxes.

9. McDonald's Nutrition Education Curriculum Endorsed by Maryland PTA? No Thanks!

A Washington Post article on October 29, 2015 ( revealed that the Maryland PTA web site included a letter from a registered dietitian working for McDonald’s suggesting that teachers show a 20 minute documentary about how a teacher lost weight eating exclusively at McDonald’s for six months.

This documentary is misleading for many reasons, including the fact that anyone who significantly decreases their calorie intake and starts exercising will likely lose weight, no matter where they eat.

We believe that schools are a place for unbiased education on nutrition, not propaganda from a fast food chain. In the midst of efforts to bring healthier food and fundraisers to schools nationally, which are supported by the National PTA, the inclusion of these materials on the Maryland PTA web site are a step in the wrong direction. Rather, the Maryland PTA should be supportive of efforts to remove marketing of unhealthy foods in schools as well as fundraisers that promote unhealthy foods.

10. Support the Good Samaritan Act for Food Donation

A bill to diminish liability and encourage food donations from produce/ hospitality businesses large and small.

THE GOOD SAMARITAN ACT (variations of which are currently in effect in other countries around the world) protects the donor against liability except in cases of 'gross negligence or intentional misconduct'. So there is no excuse not to donate.

There is no Good Samaritan act in South Africa. There are NGOs that encourage individual food donation - but businesses are too scared (understandably so)/ discouraged by the possibility of a massive lawsuit.

The Act provides protection for food and grocery products that meet all quality and labeling standards imposed by local laws and regulations even though the food may not be "readily marketable due to appearance, age, freshness, grade, size, surplus or other conditions." It would have established procedures to ensure that safe food handling and storage is built into the donation program.

Stores are constantly overstocking and there is an absurd wastage problem evident when seeing production vs consumption stats. This is senseless when there are shelters, schools, NGO programmes and underprivileged communities that could benefit greatly from this.

11. Help Save the Backfire cafe

Help save the Backfire Cafe! This is a small cafe outside the turn off to Edgewood.

It is also the only place to get actual decent food between Nakusp and Cherryville on a Sunday at 5! And often other times. It is run by a mother and two daughters. It was closed for a bit because the mother had severe medical issues (she actually died a couple times and was brought back), who lives in a tiny trailer behind the cafe during the summer. The daughters are hoping to get through college, not to mention they make rum and butter milkshakes!

Please sign and stop the government from shutting down yet ANOTHER small family business!

12. Food for children NOT new flags to flash!

The New Zealand Government is set to spend over $30 MILLION dollars on a new flag for N.Z.

Every rational person I have questioned about this issue have said they would rather see this money spent elsewhere!

Just this year, two bills motioning to provide free school lunches to lower decile schools were rejected, though it would only cost $10 to $14 million to feed EVERY child in decile 1 and 2 schools for an entire year!

Please help us to show our Government that the New Zealand tax payers would rather see their money spent on hungry children not a new set of banners to show off at the Olympics!

Make our Government see sense!

13. URGENT: DON'T LET YARRA COUNCIL AXE FUNDING for the Urban Agriculture Facilitator position

Yarra Council has dumped its widely recognised Urban Agriculture program from this years draft budget. The current funding for the Urban Agriculture Officer's position and approx $50,000 for public gardening projects has been cut.

Last year the same cuts were made in the draft budget but following a record number of community submissions and petitions protesting the cuts, the funding was reinstated into the final budget. This years draft budget is now out for community consultation until Wednesday the 13th May. If you oppose these cuts please sign the petition and make a comment about why you feel the role should be maintained.

AS the single most effective way of reducing our environmental footprint, ‘foodmiles’ & foodwaste to landfill (responsible for around 40% of greenhouse emissions) growing & sharing food locally gives our diverse community increased access to healthy activity; fresh, nutritious food, neighbourhood connectivity, skillsharing, social enterprise opportunities and local resilience in a time of rising transported food costs, population densification and climate change.

14. Stop all big take away stores from stealing our money

Just seen another mate who went to KFC and well got nothing on her burger but sauce. Empty bun.

I'm over MC donnalds and KFC and pretty much every take-away store these days stuffing up our orders. If I add up every time I have came home without a chips or a burger or even sauce it would add up to thousands of dollars by now. And that's no lie. At times they forget entire meals.

You just think how much they are making off this. It actually makes me sick. I reckon knowing the way businesses think these days they would do this on purpose. Few things here and there no one will know. 

And the food sucks most the time. These days the people working there are the new generation and they only care about when knock off is. Non of them have certification to even touch food.

So what I wanna do is start a petition to get all KFC & maccers to specify one day a year that we can get free food. To pay us all back for there fuck ups. Only a year or two. Even tho it would be billions of dollars. 

It can't just be me who is getting sick of this. 

15. Bring Back Mcdonald's Pizzas

I remember as a child ordering this delicious item from the menu from McDonald's and would love to re-live those glorious moments!

And I'm sure I'm not the only one.

16. Support Lidl in Huntingdon

Lidl was granted planning permission back in November 2013 for the redevelopment of the Former Stukeley Nurseries site in Huntingdon for a foodstore with a 1,063sqm sales area and 78 car parking spaces.

Lidl’s business model has since evolved in order to provide an improved customer experience through more space between aisles and checkouts and to create operational benefits arising from a more efficient store layout. The result of this being that Lidl now have a requirement for a slightly larger footprint and as such a revised planning application has been submitted to construct a store with a sales area of 1286sqm and 104 car parking spaces (including disabled and parent and child spaces).

The store will provide the town with a much needed discount food store, bringing more shopping choice to the local community and would create approximately 40 new jobs.

17. Save Fiesta Bravo

As most of you know Fiesta Bravo will be closing February 14, 2015.

Over the last 25 years in business Fiesta Bravo has gained a tremendous following.

The customers have made their voices heard, they want Bravo to stay open. If Bravo relocates, they will follow!

If you feel this way sign the petition below and SAVE THE SALSA!

18. Make the Right to Food Act a Reality

This Holiday, 1 in 4 South Africans are going hungry. This doesn’t have to be the case. The Government must ensure that next year is different.

19. Demand for local food at Hartwick College

We’ve all recently heard people preaching about the many benefits of local food and how we must shift our habits as a society towards more local and less imports. One of these preachers, Michael Shuman, talks about our spending patterns through terms of LOIS and TINA in his article “Going Local: New opportunities for Community Economies”. LOIS stands for Local Ownership and Import Substitution, and the other less favorable alternative (in the eyes of Shuman) is TINA, meaning There Is No Alternative (to a global economy). He describes the circular flow model and multiplier effects, intrinsic parts of LOIS, but nonsensical terms to the average consumer at first.

The circular flow model in economics shows the flow of money in an economy. The economy in question can either be the local economy such as the Otsego economy, the New York economy or even the US economy. When talking about local, we talk in terms of (at most) the state economy. When spending and purchasing is done primarily within the local economy it generates more wealth. Spending money at your local farmers market will generate disposable income for these farmers which they will spend locally creating more income for another producer, and so on. This is called the economic multiplier (Shuman).

Research done by the USDA (Martinez, et al.) suggests that local food is healthier and contains more nutrients than non-local food because of the primarily organic production processes and the less quest-like amount of food miles. Food miles are the distance the food travels from the point it is produced to the point it is consumed. Local food travels less time, and therefore both doesn't need preservative chemicals and wilts less as it travels. It is also harvested at the right, seasonal time, whereas non-local food has to be harvested earlier due to the large distances the food has to cover before reaching the nearby supermarkets. It is better for you, both nutritionally and taste-wise. (Ackerman-Leist).

As part of my project for my First Year Seminar, my colleague Nicholas Ryan and I interviewed a local business owner. Purdy Foods is a processor of local food and supplies to local colleges, fine dining establishments and institutions. They are fulfilling the vision on the “Farm to Fork” initiative and sustainable interests of our community. Purdy himself believes strongly in the local food vision, and states that local foods are healthier and taste better. He thinks that, in ten or so years, we should be calling local food just food (Purdy).

We as students knowing all the numerous benefits of local food must make a difference. We are calling on the student body to take a stand.

20. Stop Peel Holdings Plan AS17 - Petition to speak at Full Council Meeting

MMAAPP’s objection to Peel Holdings proposal AS17 to build a massive industrial/logistics complex on highly productive and most valued agricultural greenbelt. A development which would destroy habitat and prime food growing land, encourage urban sprawl and see communities merge. We are campaigning to protect the land and support development on alternative brownfield sites.

We would hope that Sefton Council will reject plan AS17 as inappropriate on agricultural greenbelt that is an essential gap between communities.

By 2030 the UK will need an additional 2 million hectares of good growing land. Why allow our best, most productive asset to be destroyed now, when brownfield sites are available, and are as well or even better connected for Peel’s purposes? Once it’s gone it’s gone: Forever.

Thank you for your support.

21. Ban Halal In Maltese Shops & Butchers

Because Animal rights should simply come before religion, a religion that is not even ours! sure enough if a maltese person was to visit a muslim country they would not change their ways to suit us.

Halal & Kosher meat is a form of unnecessary suffering for the animal, where his or her throat is slit whilst still full concious and then hung upside down in order for the blood to drain fully. This could take minutes for the animal to die!

22. Save Sefton Borough’s Green Belt – stop Peel Holdings’ plan

MMAAPP (Melling, Maghull and Aintree Against Peel Plan) exists to prevent over 100 acres of the UK’s best grade agricultural land being destroyed for profit and replaced by industrial units, leading to congested roads, loss of amenity, and the start of the erosion of the last of our Green Belt and the destruction of communities’ boundaries.

By 2030 the UK will need an additional 2 million hectares of good growing land. Why allow our best, most productive asset to be destroyed now, when brownfield sites are available, and as well if not better connected for Peel’s purposes. Once it’s gone it’s gone: Forever.

Thank you for your support.

23. Support Lidl in Taunton

Lidl have agreed terms to acquire a site formerly occupied by Taunton Youth and Community Centre located on Castle Street in Taunton.

Lidl propose to close our first generation food store situated on Wood Street and relocate to Castle Street, Taunton.

Our proposal is re-develop this site and construct a 1,706 sq m new single contemporary food store. The store will benefit from 72 car parking spaces.

The Wood Street site could potentially be sold to Churchill for riverside retirement flats.

We will shortly be publishing a full set of development plans as part of a comprehensive public consultation exercise

24. NCCU Goes Green - veggie buffet on campus


Since the petition you are about to sign concerns a local NCCU issue, only signatures of NCCU students will count. To confirm your NCCU student identity please send me your ID# via Facebook (private message). If you are non-NCCU student, please feel free to sign our petition to show your support!

Dear NCCU Students,
Please join us in making our lives easier and healthier, and our world greener.
Right now, the NCCU campus lacks vegetarian options. The vegetarian environment around the campus is not ideal either. I believe that all NCCU students and faculty members should be given the opportunity to eat VEGETARIAN FOOD on the campus. And accessing vegetarian food should be as fast and easy as possible.
I also believe that the importance of having the right to choose vegetarian food has never been greater, as we are facing so many ecological challenges today*.

Therefore, we hope NCCU could provide VEGETARIAN BUFFET!
A chance for us to have a HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE and ENVIRONMENT and to complement the already beautifully green surroundings of National Chengchi University with another green facet! 

If you are a vegetarian or a meat eater who loves to occasionally enjoy vegetarian food, please join our petition and let the NCCU president hear our request!
Please “Like” the NCCU Goes Green Facebook page and share the news with more people.

Let's make this difference together!


Industrialized meat production leads to:
- extensive water consumption (20,000 liters of water to produce 1kg of meat!) 
- water pollution (from fertilizers, pesticides)
- greenhouse gas emissions (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide)
- soil erosion
- deforestation (50 sq. meters of rainforest to produce 1kg of meat)
- animal waste accumulation
- biodiversity loss

25. Stop U.S. Chicken from Going to China for processing and then returned to the USA

I am starting this petition to stop the United States government from sending chicken raised in the U.S. to China for processing, which is then returned to the States for consumption.

It has been in the news how the USDA is too short staffed so they want to send our food source to a place with less than substandard conditions. Salmonella, maggots, deplorable conditions.

Please sign my petition to stop our government from sending chicken to China.

26. No More GMOs as Food Products

There are links to cancer and GMOs and also death can be a side effect. And they are putting this in our food!?

This petition is so we can bring this to a halt so our fellow humans can be healthy.

27. Reinstate Ongoing Urban Agriculture Funding in City of Yarra Now

AS the single most effective way of reducing our environmental footprint, ‘foodmiles’’ & foodwaste to landfill (responsible for around 40% of greenhouse emissions) growing & sharing food locally gives our diverse community increased access to healthy activity; fresh, nutritious food, neighbourhood connectivity, skillsharing, social enterprise opportunities and local resilience in a time of rising transported food costs, population densification and climate change.

28. Stop Poisoning Food in Bangladesh

Bangladeshis are suffering from heart attacks 10 years earlier than typical sufferers in the west, says the preliminary findings of a Cambridge study.

“The average age of Bangladeshis who suffer heart attacks is 52, with approximately forty percent of the cases involving people below the age of 50,” said Rajiv Chowdhury, principal investigator of the study.

Toxic heavy metals such as arsenic, copper and lead in fish and rice may be increasing the risk of heart attacks, the study suggests.

Along with the English university, Dhaka-based health research institution ICDDR,B and the Bangladesh National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases are conducting the ongoing study.

Rajiv Chowdhury, senior scientist at Cambridge University, presented the findings at a seminar titled “Bangladesh at Risk of Acute Vascular Events” in ICDDR,B auditorium in the capital yesterday.

The study, which began in 2011, will continue for another couple of years. So far 4,000 cases of heart attacks have been analysed under the study.

29. End World Hunger

Did you know 19,000 children under the age of five die every day form hunger.

That's the equivalent to 30 local schools. But did you also know that we have more than enough food her in the USA to supply them?

If this petition gets enough signatures, we can have farms and processed food plants donate a portion of their products (0.3%-1%) to less fortunate countries, then we can cut world hunger by at least 75%!

30. Bring back Wonka bars!

Please Nestlé, bring back these Wonka bars! They tasted so good! I even liked both the movies (Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, 1971 and Charlie & the Chocolate Factory, 2005) that have this type of bar.

These bars tasted so good that it bring back memories of everyone, including me!
