The Farm Bill, which has had such a huge impact on much of America's eating life, is up for reauthorization in 2012. "The Critical Topics in Food Series" will attempt to digest the implications of this far-reaching legislation in two discussions this May. The first, "Food Fight!" will bring together articulate policy wonks to talk through how the legislation, which ran to nearly 700 printed pages, has wandered madly from its original focus of helping struggling farmers and other hungry Americans after the Great Depression.This first of two conversations, moderated by Clark Wolf, host of the Fales Library's "Critical Topics in Food Series," visits, from a policy standpoint, the many facets and issues of this extensive, complex, and costly legislation. A reception and book signing will follow immediately after the discussion. Books from Dan Imhoff and Marion Nestle will be available for purchase at the event.
