I’m speaking with Fabio Parasecoli about his new book, Gastronativism: Food, Identity, Politics, at the Museum of the City of New York at a session chaired by Krishnendu Ray at 6:30 pm. Information is here and the ticketing link is here. This is a preview of the museum’s forthcoming exhibit, Food in New York: Bigger Than the Plate (opening September 16) and is co-presented by MOFAD (Museum of Food and Drink).
Q: How are US farmers doing? A: Depends on how big they are.
The USDA’s now-crippled Economic Research Service has published some reports on farm income.
This is Big Ag, of course. As the Heritage Foundation enjoys pointing out:
Oh for an agricultural policy that supports growing food for people, not feed for animals or fuel for cars.
Biden administration: get busy!
