Digest: Venison, market, Farm Bill

January 27th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Farm Bill, local food

Quiet week in the local food news, at least as far as I can find. Still, here are a few nuggets.

Hunters hunt, hungry eat. A Kansas group donates deer that is processed, packaged and given to low-income families. Win, win, win.

Casbah open for business. After many months of anticipation, the Casbah Market is open. Can’t find a news item, and I’ll write something more about it later, but thought I’d mention it here for those who’ve been wondering.

Farm Bill—again. Or may I should say Farm Bill—still. The monster bill is going to conference committee, and the Sustainable Agriculture Commission is cranking up its action alerts. Take a look at them, or sign up for weekly updates in your inbox.

Pats on food purveyors’ backs. Musician and blogger John Statz finds a thing or two to say about food in Lawrence and Hays.
