Convergance of Food, Ag and Hunger beats …

Swamped with work today, but there’s an interesting piece over at the Columbia Journalism Review on the new direction food reporting is taking:

“The world of food reporting had been divided,” Severson told me recently. “You’d have an agriculture reporter who didn’t understand how a kitchen worked and a reporter covering hunger who might not understand what it took to put food on the table at night,” plus the restaurant critics and the recipe editors. Newspapers today, she adds, “are really bringing all of that together.”

One thought on “Convergance of Food, Ag and Hunger beats …

  1. I’d actually like to see more in the mainstream press about emergency food – how it’s distributed, how MUCH of it is distributed, and what would happen if regional food banks didn’t exist. Emergency food is almost always on the margins of food system discussion, but when 35 million people are experiencing hunger and/or malnutrition, it’s a big problem that deserves more of the spotlight.

    I’ve been reading the book The Revolution Will Not Be Microwaved – I really like the idea of empowerment through food. I believe food justice is absolutely crucial.

    Thanks for this link. I’ve been enjoying your blog!
