Do we really need bananas?

Though I love bananas as much as the next person, I can’t help but wonder if we need to be buying them every week. Bananas have a pretty crazy environmental and social impact, not to mention the distance they have to travel to reach Wisconsin. Many of these issues are not mitigated by organic or fair trade… Just something to consider.

    This would be great to bring up at a meeting. I usually order them because as fruit they are relatively cheap and healthy. But I am open to listening to what others have to say. Thanks! Jeff
