It’s Friday afternoon, and that means it’s time for me to give you a little weekend reading from around the web. Since there was so much going on in Washington this week regarding our food system, I thought we’d stick to that this weekend.
- I told you earlier this week that the Senate passed a version of The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. Good news right? Maybe not. Grist reports on a technical difficulty with the bill that might have it dead on arrival in the House.
- The Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act passed in the House yesterday and is being sent to the President for his signature. Slow Food USA tells us what’s good about the bill.
- The Slow Cook isn’t so impressed with the Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act. They feel kids will only be served up more foods they won’t eat instead of getting a choice of healthy foods they like.
- Obama Foodorama reports that the USDA will give over $4 million in grants or 77 different food projects in 34 states to make healthy food accessible to all families.
Enjoy your weekend!
