Food Fight! A Close Look at the 2012 Farm Bill
The Farm Bill, which has had such a huge impact on much of America’s eating life, was up for reauthorization in 2012. The panel in this Critical Topics in Food event attempt to digest the implications of this far-reaching legislation. This discussion brings together articulate policy wonks to talk through how the legislation, which ran to nearly 700 printed pages, has wandered madly from its original focus of helping struggling farmers and other hungry Americans after the Great Depression.
On the panel are Dan Imhoff, Marion Nestle, Ned Porter, and Abigail Youngblood. Moderated by Clark Wolf.
