Daily Change, April 14th

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — bcflannfam @ 01:49

Today’s Daily Change articles:

12 pages of details on how fast food became such a large industry in America — and how it targets and often promotes childhood obesity, even in countries where hunger remains a life-threatening issue:  http://www.cggc.duke.edu/pdfs/GlobalHealth/2010-09-03_Christian_Gereffi_The_marketing_distribution_of_fast_food_Ch30.pdf

An article questioning Walmart as a grocery and fresh produce option — plus how the growth and consolidation of giant corporations has cost both the direct food suppliers (ranchers and farmers) AND the end consumer:  http://grist.org/food/2011-12-30-eaters-beware-walmart-is-taking-over-our-food-system/

Ending Hunger Now:  A Challenge to Persons of Faith:  George McGovern, Bob Dole, and Donald E. Messer’s book with a forward written by Bill Clinton.  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/ending-hunger-now-george-s-mcgovern/1112380212

What qualifies this group to publish about world hunger?  Dole and McGovern produced a program, The International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program, that has provided school meals for millions of children in dozens of countries since 2000.
