Roundup: Prices, pantries, programs

July 8th, 2008 · No Comments · Food in the news, Roundup

I think we’re getting inured to unsafe food, as the salmonella poisoning seems to barely register on the news radar this week, locally or nationally. Here’s some of what is in the local news, food-wise:

Lunch ticket gets punched. Topeka school meal planners wrangle with higher food costs. (Topeka Capitol-Journal) Lawrence schools, too. (LJ World)

New assistant ag dean at K-State. A native daughter who grew up on a farm and went on to study agribusiness is named to K-State post. We’ll hope as head of academic programs she has some interest in sustainable farming methods. (K-State)(Her Purdue bio)

Cupboards going bare. Lawrence’s food pantries are running short. (Lawrence Journal-World)

The beef next door. More Kansas ranchers are selling directly to consumers. (Wichita Eagle)

Tomato fest goes on. Salmonella scare doesn’t deter City Market festival. (KC Star)

Food safety tips. K-State’s got ‘em. (K-State)
