Agriculture News As It Happens


Food Day observations in progress

Groups around the country today are sponsoring events to encourage healthier eating.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest announced that this evening, Rep. Chellie Pingree, D-Maine, is hosting a conference in the U.S. Capitol Visitor Center on “The Future of Food: 2050,” during which panelists from Wal-Mart, the Worldwatch Institute, the Institute for Alternative Futures and other organizations will speculate on what diets and agriculture might look like by the middle of the century.

(Attendees will Tweet from the conference using the #FOF2050 hashtag.)
