Abigail Stauffer and Rap For Food video spoofs Taylor Swift in praise of local food
The song, "We are Never Ever Eating Bad Together" is a take-off on Taylor Swift's breakup song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," and features lyrics like "we could eat all kinds of ancient grains instead of wheat."
Local food producers, facilitators and activists make cameo appearances in the video, including Selma Cafe's Lisa Gottlieb, Locavorious owner Rena Basch, and Shannon Brines from Brines Farm.

This is FANTASTIC! I don't know how I am just now discovering this post. But the video is amazing! And what a great promo for the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market!

I have to say - I would rather hear Abigail Stauffer's voice than Taylor Swift's any day of the week, and the fact that the lyrics are fun and the message is great only makes this better.

Nicely done. Although the credits rolling at the end rival the last Hollywood production I saw. (which was Silver Linings Playbook. ;) Coincidentally my wife and I are trying to get some better eating habits.
