Big Ag Monopolies Have Stifled Small Farmers. 2020 Democrats Want to Break Them Up.
When a few agribusinesses have all the power, one choice by them can determine the course of a farmer's entire production. Will 2020 change that?
Hi, I'm Emily Moon, Pacific Standard's staff writer covering public assistance and food insecurity. I write about how people produce, access, and consume food. In the past, we've addressed questions like these: Why is participation in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) falling? Will a new Trump administration proposal harm food assistance recipients? How many college students are going hungry?
Now we want to hear from you. We're launching this project to learn what questions you have and how food insecurity, food deserts, and malnutrition affect you or the people in your life. Send me any questions you have about food insecurity, and I'll do the research. Later, we'll ask our audience to help decide which stories we should pursue. Your feedback will help fuel our future reporting, so we can connect people with the knowledge they need to access nutritious food.
