Obama Shines Light on San Diego Healthy Food Policy TODAY

Perhaps you’ve heard the news that the First Lady will be visiting New Roots Farm today as part of her campaign to fight childhood obesity.  The article in the UT suggests that the recent CDC block grant precipitated the visit, so we look forward to seeing the final list of projects and grant recipients.  (Updates soon!)

Let’s hope that Michelle Obama shines light on emerging, “home-grown” efforts by San Diegans, such as the 1 in 10 Coalition, a local food policy advocacy group; the People’s Produce Projectbringing gardens and markets to Southeast; the burgeoning Community Garden Council; and the Food Policy Taskforce (headed up by Terra Miguel and others)!
