“Candidates running for president have been in and out of Iowa for the last several months outlining their positions on the environment, taxes, gun control and health care. Have you heard any of them talk about their position on food? On this hour of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe talks with Richardo Salvador and Mark Bittman about their push to create a conversation about food policy, and how the government subsidizes food production.
Salvador is Director for the Food and Environment Program for the Union of Concerned Scientists, and Bittman is a food activist who left his post at the New York Times to pursue activism full-time.
“I like to think that we could have a policy that said that people of the U.S. are entitled to food that’s green, that’s fair, that’s affordable, that’s nutritious. Those are all things we can agree upon,” says Bittman.”
