Weekend reading and viewing: What the Democratic candidates have to say about food and agriculture

The New
York Times carried a plea this week
 for more attention to
food and nutrition policy from presidential candidates.

Civil Eats is tracking what they are saying

So is Jerry Hagstrom, who has given permission to re-post these
links from his Hagstrom
, a daily newsletter about “agriculture news as it
happens,” to which I gratefully subscribe (the
Washington Post just ran a story about him)

Hagstrom collected agricultural position
