I recently discovered the Obama Foodorama blog. I’ll add it to my blog roll. Michelle Obama’s initiatives to change the food system at the White House and USDA generated some excitement early on among sustainable and organic food types. Unfortunately, the latest budget deal eliminated some SARE programs like ATTRA, one of the greatest, most useful government-funded programs ever.

One step forward. Two steps back.
