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
Report
, 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
statements
posted by candidates in Iowa.
