As if Google didn’t have enough on its plate, it appears the Mountain View business is adding yet an additional feather to its cap by entering into the delivery company.

Question by Unmellow Yellow crayon: Help with conclusion on slow foods/ local foods?
I am doing a speech on local foods help with conclusion? I dont have one yet
Slow Foods, Local Foods
“Slow Food aims to be everything fast foods is not” USA Today. These words just about sum up what everyone believes Slow Foods it about, actually it’s much more. Slow Foods is more than a way of eating, it’s a lifestyle. This lifestyle connects our food consumption and lifestyle elements around us. Slow Foods is now a global movement with thousands of members around the world. These members link the delight of food with their commitment to the community and the environment. If you were to look at any produce at any store here in Hawaii, you would probably see Made in Mexico, Made in California, or Made in Chili. Can you believe that that tomato you’re eating traveled 3,980 miles just so you could devoured it? People have gone so far with food, and now its time to backtrack. We need to go back to our roots, gardens at home, and the local markets, you may not think that this could impact our world but it can, and with your help it will.
Slow Food aims to counter fast life, as in fast food restaurants and industrialized foods. Fast life has led to thousands of irreplaceable local traditional restaurants, all because industrialized foods are easy to package. Fast life has a major impact on the environment, all those planes, barges, and factory processing and shipping food all over the world. Basically Slow foods is promoting local farmers markets and all local food. They are trying to tell us, “Hey stop buying that stuff from Mexico and who knows where. Start helping your environment, and eat foods from where you live for a change!” These people are right.
Do you know why food costs so much in Hawaii? Because it has to travel so far; to travel you need gas, to have gas you need money. That money they need is coming straight out of your pocket. 80-90% of food in the state of Hawaii is imported, think about that next time you eat a tomato. Imagine if only 50% was imported or 40%, most of the food you see in grocery stores would be local. If everyone in the island of Hawaii went out to a local farmers market and bought their weeks worth of food there, not only would you be promoting Slow Food and local food, you would have helped the environment greatly. Think about it 148,677 people all buying locally grown food, that would take a huge weight off the environment.
Your probably thinking, so what? I can just go to Costco and get everything I need. Well eating local mean more for the local economy. For every dollar you spend locally it produces twice as much income for the local economy. Whereas buying at a non-local place such as Costco, the money leaves our community every time someone buys something. Local food is almost always fresher that imported foods, when you shop at supermarkets the produce have been sitting there for days, or even weeks. When you buy local the produce has probably been picked within the day before. Eating local is better for air quality and pollution. Believe it or not, eating organic isn’t like eating local, organic foods still travel thousands of miles to get to you. Whereas any local food could be from your neighbors backyard and only have to travel a couple of steps.

I don’t know where to begin. Your essay is full of fragments, run-ons, and statements that need to have sources.
In general, your conclusion should echo your opening paragraph but in different words. It should go from the specific to the general, ending in an idea similar to your theme.
You need to edit this paper carefully.
