Awesome food subsidies, Photos and a recipe from Natalie

Awesome food subsidies:

It’s a well known fact that really bad food is heavily subsidized in this country. Corn, the building block for bad food, is subsidized to a point that would make Cuban farmer’s blush. Recently, Mark Bittman has been writing some excellent articles in the New York Times about taxing bad food and reducing corn subsidies. The saving in reduced health care cost to the nation, would go a long way toward deficit reduction. On a different angle, the Awesome Foundation recently announced that it will be handing out $1000 grants to companies that produce awesome food. It’s peanuts compared to the gazillions the U.S. government dolls out to corn farmer’s, but it’s a great idea and definitely a step in the right direction.
