@Food Politics    Please go there and read the comments which are as instructive as the post. Here is an excerpt:

"Readers Robyn and Will sent me a link to an ABC News story about Yum! Brands efforts to get more states to authorize the use of food stamp (SNAP) benefits in fast food restaurants.

Michigan, California, Arizona, and Florida already do this. Yum!, the parent company of KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut, wants it to go national.

But then the article quoted Ed Cooney, executive director of the Congressional Hunger Center and a long-time anti-hunger advocate:
They think going hungry is better?…I’m solidly behind what Yum! is doing.
Of course he is. Want to take a guess at who funds the Congressional Hunger Center?

Yum! is listed as a “Sower,” meaning that its annual gift is in the range of $10,000. I’m guessing Yum! is delighted that it is getting such good value at such low cost."

Here are some of those comments.

    In response to Greenconsciousness ” wonder if the snap progran could get into CSA’s with boxes delivered to the poor every two weeks” ???

    Actually, CSAs can already apply to accept SNAP and some awesome and inclusive CSAs do:

    Unfortunately, many CSAs do not accept SNAP. If you belong to a CSA, please encourage them to accept SNAP (and offer an installment payment plan). This is a great way to help low-income families afford fruits and vegetables.

  • Kris Heeter, Ph.D.

  • Having personally mentored young kids who have grown up in low income families, I’ve seen the very vicious cycle of poor eating. Allowing food stamps to be used for fast food will only make this cycle worse and the health care problems worse. Eating poorly affects birth rates, has obvious health consequences, and research suggests that there can be down stream genetic consequences that can be passed on to later generatons. Allowing and encouraging more fast food consumption will only perpetuate the cycle and ultimately make it more difficult to climb out of poverty.

    I’ve been pleased to see that food vouchers are accepted and encouraged at our local farmers market. Our community has made very strong efforts to educate and offer free workshops at one of our food banks. This programming allows those on food stamps to learn how to prepare fresh whole foods, gives them access to fresh whole foods, and teaches how to grow fresh foods and canning.

    I would love to see more of this in our communities – education is key and it has to start even with our youngest community members. Supporting school programs that promote teaching kids gardening for example. Kids that actively participate in planting and tending community and school gardens have been shown to take pride in what they produce and more willing to eat the fruits of their labor.


    Thank you Jessica and all of you – Antro is correct about frozen vegies –i reprinted some of these comments on my blog.

    I also sent B’s response to my question about CSAs and food stamps to every CSA organization in WI.

    I urge all of you to do the same in your states. Just cut and paste B’s answer into an email to your state’s CSA organizations and ask them to pass on the info to their CSA farms and help them join the food stamp program.

    I want the food stamp program to subsidize educators for the people who get those boxes. That could be done by the farms that pack the boxes on-line as in Kris Heeter, PhD’s blog or on public access TV or at drop off centers for people who do not have computers or TV but do have transportation.

    Some people’s boxes will have to be dropped off at their homes. Meals on Wheels could be paid to deliver boxes — or special transport vans could drive the people to pick ups—–more green job opportunities. Medicare/medicaid could provide in-home food educators in special cases the way they provide in-home care after hospital stays.

    I want the food stamp program to increase/double the amount of food stamps an individual gets providing they join a CSA as an incentive. Or to pay the veggie/fruit farms directly while eliminating other ag subsidies, leaving the people some of their food stamps so there will be enough left to buy protein (tofu for me).

    I believe that giving people CSA boxes from both fruit and vegetable farms regularly with education about how to cook those foods so they taste good would be a great benefit to the poor, to organic farmers and therefore to our whole country.

    And yes, organic. Government programs should make the connections between the environment and public health.

    Globalized agriculture (IGA) is heavily implicated in climate change.

    IGA contributes to the three major greenhouse gases:
    carbon dioxide (CO2) from the use of fossil fuels,
    nitrogen oxide (N2O) from the use of chemical fertilizers, and methane (CH4) from factory farming.

    Getting rid of poison in the manufacture of food, getting rid of the manure lagoons which spray untreated manure on fruit crops sold to humans will benefit public health as much as good nutrition.
    So yes, SNAP should try to subsidize organic CSAs by increasing benefits so that nutritious food and preparation knowledge is delivered to the poor. And so we reduce the amount of greenhouse gas in the environment.

    It is critical that activists, young people, bleeding hearts and the politically correct among us learn how our organizations, allegedly progressive organizations,  can be (as many are) fronts for corporate greed.  This includes old organizations which were hippie founded.

     Look at their boards, look at their funders, and look at their staff.  Take nothing for granted. 

    The AARP sells insurance and takes political stances that are good for the insurance industry not old people. 

    The Sierra Club and the Defenders of Wildlife, should be against overpopulation and against the destruction of the border ecology by illegal immigrant trafficking, but instead are against building a wall.  They say nothing else can be done for migrating animals but to have open borders.  People quit the organizations in droves and those who tried to fight the staff were expelled by pressure tactics.

    Excellent, heads up post. For some reason, I have been unable to comment on your posts for quite a while. Hope you are well and you have/had a bountiful harvest.

    WHAT!!!! Just the other day I found one of my old posts, I think it was Aug 26th post, that had 100 links from DJF at the bottom under the comments and I thought something is wrong here..... I missed you but felt peace and that your life was happier -- hope that is true.

    The garden - the garden -- I could talk for hours about the garden -- strange year -- strange harvest -- but beauty all around me -- perfect happiness when I sit outside with the cats and look at the garden and feel the wind and air.

    I am painting and want to get off the old paintings and onto the new but I keep dicking around on one that is never going to be right. It's over but I can't let go.

    If I have trouble in the future, I shall email you. It was so frustrating and I kept trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. I have recently switched my browser to Safari, so maybe that has something to do with it. I read Sia's post on caring for the elderly a while back. I saw your comment and totally missed you!! As for not letting your art go, I totally understand. Stop trying to pursue perfection, as there is no such thing. Or, put it aside and come back to it at a later date. I sometimes do that and when I go back, I can't believe what I actually achieved!

    Yeah there is definitly something wrong because even when I say it is done and varnish it --- on the last one I painted over the varnish for god's sake -- I have no idea if that is going to last without cracking or what --lucky it is a gift for a friend so she is well aware she gets it "as is", actually as my id.
