A couple food policy tidbits

April 8, 2010 § Leave a comment

Kathleen Merrigan, my former food policy professor who is now the deputy secretary of the USDA and an amazing champion of organics and local, sustainable food, is in the running for the TIME list of the 100 most influential people of 2010!!  Which is totally exciting and awesome for the sustainable food movement!  If you’d like to vote for her (you use the slider above the picture to rate the level of influence of the person) go here: Kathleen on TIME.  Also, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution – his show trying to bring cooking and healthier foods to one of the most unhealthy communities in the US (in West Virginia) – is taking off and receiving a lot of attention.  I haven’t quite decided how I feel about the show or his approach, however I think the goal of getting people back in touch with their food in its most whole form and teaching cooking skills is really admirable, and I love his vision, which you can sign on to support by signing his petition.
