Get Government Out of the Fridge! April Roundtable
Just when you thought it was safe to grab a midnight snack, AFF brings you an April Roundtable entitled “Get Government Out of the Fridge.” From the perplexing USDA food pyramid, to Congress bravely declaring pizza a vegetable in school cafeterias, to the multi-billion agricultural subsidies dished out each year, many culinary experts are fed up with the clumsy, overbearing regulation and asking “Where’s the beef?” But should we really be thanking our gustatory government guardians for bravely defending us against the dreaded Pink Slime? Once our panel explains the many subtle and not-so-subtle ways government influences what you eat every day, you may never look at your plate the same way again.
