Bipartisan food reform

(article, Culinate staff)

The magazine The American Conservative recently put food reform on its cover, arguing that — despite what you might think of all those liberal hippies shopping at farmers' markets and growing their own food — fixing our food system is really a conservative cause. And why not? After all, the better-food movement is essentially traditionalist, calling for old ways over new ways, heritage foods over GMO grub, and independent food production over centralized industry. Quibbles? The American Conservative doesn't care much about food justice.
