If they are this conflicted about lunch

no wonder they can't come up with a better farm bill.

Nancy Pelosi has taken the House in hand, with an eye toward greener and healthier food, the New York Times reports.

Here's the site of the group they are contracting with - who had to change some of their claims to satisfy the industrial food side(s) of the aisle.

I note they could move toward greater sustainability if they would get rid of some of the menu items that are not seasonal, but all in all this seems like a pretty good effort.

The Times article reports that no such strides have been made in the Senate. Interestingly, for the most forward thinking and best developed food policy among presidential candidates one needs to look to an ex-Senator, John Edwards.
