My lecture on childhood nutrition and food politics at the University of Georgia has been cancelled: Coronovirus.
The National Farmers’ Union computes the farmers’ share of the cost of your Thanksgiving dinner.
The farmers’ share? 11 cents.
And turkey growers, who raise the staple Thanksgiving dish, received just $0.06 per pound retailing at $1.29..that $0.06 figure—while striking on its own—is particularly egregious when considering the fact that poultry integrators received $0.53 per pound.
Happy Thanksgiving food politics.
