According to Catholic Rural Life, what we eat is a moral issue. How do we use an informed conscience to make moral eating decisions?

1. By placing an emphasis on eating and purchasing foods that are good for the planet.

2. By eating and purchasing foods that are good to grow and that benefit soil and water resources.

3. By focusing our purchasing decisions on the common good—what is good and just for farms, farmers, and their workers in terms of health and well being.

4. By asking questions about how food is grown, harvested, and kept safe for us to eat.
