Farm Bill Food Fight

Farm Bill Food Fight
It seems to me that the word "fresh" might preclude canned goods..but some lawmakers disagree..........

Quote:Some lawmakers want to add frozen, canned, pureed and dried produce to the menus of the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program for schoolchildren.
It’s a proposal Maine GOP Rep. Bruce Poliquin says will help American children “be able to eat healthy all year round with nutritious products from across the country,” according to The Associated Press.
Adding packaged and processed fruits and vegetables to the fresh produce snack program is not only “a huge win for our school children,” Poliquin said, but would enlarge the consumer market for blueberry farmers in Maine and other produce industries.

.......yes, yes, think of the kids...and maines blueberry market.   Rolleyes

We participate in our kids schools farm to table program..which uses funds to buy from local suppliers. Most of what they get is donated by families like ours, though, because there's just not enough money in it to buy enough produce. This guy wants to scoop up some of that already insufficient funding for his constituents canned blueberries. Frozen tater tots and blueberry mush for all! Maybe someone ought to tell that asshole we grow highbush here, too?
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
