Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Happy World Food Day!

Wfd_englishStasi reminded me that today is World Food Day!  She has an excellent post that reflects on an article by Frances Moore Lappe and Anna Lappe.  Check out the post. Thanks to Stasi for the shout out to Bread.

World Food Day highlights that everyone has a right to food.  Michael Pollan was recently interviewed about his upcoming book - In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.  He has some excellent thoughts about the politics of food, access to healthy food and the farm bill.  Read the full interview.

Speaking of the farm bill, the fight still continues in the senate. Be sure to read our most recent update and how you can take action this week.

How are you celebrating World Food Day?
