Making sense out of the world of politics

Food politics coverage in 2010

with one comment

In lieu of a regular column this week (hey, it’s Christmas Eve), we thought we would spotlight some of the recent food politics coverage from our sister blog,

Most of the coverage concerns school lunch bills and food safety bills, but we’ll start off with a look at the “Happy Meals” lawsuit. Enjoy the holiday season.

House passes food safety bill; we deserved a much better political process

Solution to McDonald’s Happy Meals lawsuit? Keep the toy, throw away the food

Obama signs school lunch bill, still waiting on food safety bill

National Review’s Kate O’Beirne can’t fathom poverty, food deserts in her ‘cereal and a banana’ crack

Sarah Palin could help improve food supply if she argued policy, not politics

We have a school lunch bill; President Obama should sign bill by the WH organic garden

Colbert Report: Tom Vilsack and school lunches

Jon Stewart, Spaghetti O’s, and the food safety bill

Stephen Colbert calls out Tom Vilsack for ag policy contradictions

Your Senate at work passing a food safety bill, but it may not be enough

And this is just from December. There won’t be as much to write about in terms of food politics for at least the next two years, thanks to the new GOP-led House of Representatives.

Happy Holidays!!
