What is Organic Food?

Here is a definition which best answers the above question:

The term organic food is food produced in a way that complies with organic standards set by national jurisdictions and international regulatory bodies.

In the USA, organic food production is a system that is managed in accordance with the regulation of Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990 and regulations in Title 7, Part 205 of the Code of Federal Regulations to respond to site-specific conditions by integrating cultural, biological, and mechanical practices that foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. In other loosely worded terms it means sustainable farming methods that are employed in natural food production.

Walmart donating food to Feeding America
Organic Foods Guide
In 2009, Walmart started using the U.S. EPA Food Waste Hierarchy to guide our efforts for identifying solutions for excess food at our stores and clubs. Today, the majority of the excess food is donated to the Feeding America program. Feeding America manages incoming food and delivers it to food banks in every state throughout the U.S., making it a great partner for Walmart. In 2009, Walmart donated more than 127 million pounds of food to the program, which was distributed to families in need across the nation.
