Food News Round Up: Wrangling Action

by Emily Contois

Welcome, gastronomes and cowboys alike, to this action-oriented (and alluringly alliterative) edition of Food News Round Up. Part of the news process is indeed passive — the pleasant and oft solitary experience of soaking up the news via paper or screen. But what is so key with food, is the desire to take the next step beyond the passive processes of perusing, reading, and contemplating to the impassioned action of politicking, organizing, and converging. So stick a fork in these delicious bites of news — and then wrangle some food action.

Peruse – and Politick – the Politics of Provisions

Read – and Reason – Rousing Research Results

Ogle – and Organize! – Organic Oddities

Contemplate – and Critique – if Calories Count

Digest – and Dive into – Food Desert Discussions

Curl Up to – and Converge – Food Culture Conversations
