Pushing for local food in the farm bill: an interview with Chellie Pingree
Grist - 6/6/2012.
By Enrique Gili – Does local and organic food matter more to people in Maine than it does to other Americans? It’s possible, but Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine) insists that’s not why she introduced the Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act, a small but encouraging set of legislative reforms meant to accompany this year’s farm bill.
The food movement’s final frontier: taking care of workers
Grist - 6/6/2012.
By Twilight Greenaway – Rita has worked for the same Missouri-based pork processing company for 13 years. And yet she feels like she could lose her job at any time. If this 49-year-old mother of four is late for work by as little as five minutes, that’s one strike. If she takes more than her allotted seven minutes to race to the bathroom and back, that’s another strike. Three strikes is all it takes.
How much reform does the Farm Bill really contain?
Alternet - 6/6/2012.
By Susan Prolman and Ferd Hoefner – This week, the full Senate is expected to take up the farm bill. The farm bill spends one trillion dollars over ten years and sets food and agriculture policy for our nation. The bill’s title is the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, but how much reform does it really contain?
New initiative aims to build truly local, resilient economies
Treehugger - 6/6/2012.
By Sami Grover – It seems like every other month, what has begun to feel like a tentative economic recovery once again starts feeling a whole lot less secure. Each time that happens, more and more of us realize that stability, resilience and quality of life should be our prime goals – not growth for the sake of growth.
