Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Social Supermarkets A 'Win-Win-Win' For Europe's Poor
National Public Radio - 12/12/2013.
By Serri Graslie, The Salt - Somewhere between a food pantry and a traditional grocery store lies an opportunity to help feed those in need. Enter "social supermarkets," a European model that offers discounted food exclusively to those in poverty.
Mixed Reactions to New FDA Regulations for Antibiotic Use
National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition - 12/12/2013.

By China has suspended imports of shellfish from the West Coast of the United States – an unprecedented move that cuts off a $270 million Northwest industry from its biggest export market. The restriction took effect last week and China’s government says it will continue indefinitely.
