on Local Lunch
QUESTION: One of your guests said the "local food" meal was 50 cents more expensive than a similar meal through the "commodity stream" (meaning through the FDA). How much is the "commodity stream" meal subsidized by the federal government? Would the locally-produced meal be more cost-effective if the feds supported local food as much as they do big agribusiness?
