"The reporter wasn't the from the new york or something. I think he said he has precisely seven on council change. I think it was and then it wasn't trade. I don't even think it was obama himself. I think it was someone else who put that out. Okay as a sign of his iron will disciplined it was. We're talking to corby kummer okay. Let's talk about food insecurity. There was a lot of money Federal spending and and child will giving during the pandemic which on the one hand helped all these food insecure house near the hand indicated. How big the problem is thank. Let's get back to what food insecure means. It means that a household within a given month is not sure that it will have access to or money enough to cover the needs of everybody in the household. So that's what food insecurity means. It means uncertainty about their own resources in the course of a month so the surprising study from the. Usda the department of agriculture was that levels of food insecurity overall and And people who responded that they felt they were food insecure. Didn't change all that much from twenty twenty over twenty nineteen. What did change was the enormous amount of government money available to help food insecurity and with food assistance and the number of share people using those increase government resources or example. I think that we all saw or can remember that. Feeding america last year during the pandemic said that one in seven people in the united states of the population might have been food insecure in the country and the reason the. Usda isn't a saying that there was a huge spike in. This is because so much government. Assistance helps out people who needed a money. But the big question is gonna shake down in october november. So in october a lot of the pandemic relieves her expiring including the really important up pandemic bt of for school children relief which was giving families the option of using the same amount of money their child and in fact family could have had a for school lunches they were able to put that into the Purchasing power on their snap benefits That's expiring but at the same time And october i which i think is incredibly soon the historic rise in snap and food assistance benefits that the biden administration rammed through based on a bipartisan. Vote and order to congress for years ago to recalculate. What every household on food assistance needed in order to be the household. That's happening supposedly on october. One this historic increase in snap benefits. Will that be enough to make up for these expirations of pandemic food relief. We won't really know till october. November statistics come out. But it's worrisome. But as one of the one of their benefit That also unless congress i think. This is bipartisan. Well actually no. It's in the three point five trillion. Isn't it the making permanent or at least expanding for extending for five years the child tax which obviously is a huge plus for people feeding their kids and they've they've shown that a huge percentage of that money is going to literally feeding your family so let's hope congress's is huge and one other aspect of the unexpectedly sort of sunny sounding. Usda report was that racial disparities were more sharply emphasized by the pandemic. The theory is that has mostly..

"Cetera. senators sound. Yesterday i went into whole foods to buy when my kids was coming home. His favorite kind of turkey from there and it was gone. I said the guy what happened and he said well they got rid of it because of a of investigation With some animal cruelty stuff. You're not saying the name because you're not sure because there were several different names. The name name wrong. But i went online this morning and looked at a pita investigation. Apparently of how the turkeys were treated at the supposedly you main natural place and it was gruesome and that was linked to the turkey. I couldn't get at whole foods so at least they were paying attention but it does make you think if you were going to these stores to get the cage. Free eggs to get the humanely raise whatever it is. We don't really have any idea. Did they have any idea. Trader joe's and wholefoods you know. I applaud you for carrying about animal welfare. But as we've discussed and we will discuss again with whole foods. That's their own system of animal welfare. Raisings isn't even done by the animal welfare institute which is a really good one but there are competing designations for what is raised with animal welfare in mind so i actually applaud whole foods. I didn't know that they've actually removed a product from the shelf because they've been problems that they've investigated a big criticism of these kinds of advocacy organizations. We've been talking about. Is that companies. Leave it to themselves to say. Here's what we think is animal welfare. I think that cage free has a definition but free range does not and so. They're all these terms that are constantly on labels and they don't necessarily have trade organizations let alone any kind of government of organization that is defining the only term that you've mentioned so far that does is organic so the organic trade act Which is i think. Almost twenty years years old by now is that various redefinition. But it's the only thing that's actually got. Government backing of what it means to put organic on the label. Animal welfare sustainability natural completely. A free for all talking to corby kummer so corey. I never missed one last thing before we leave this so since so many people do go to those stores. I'm sure there are other ones as well that advertise humane treatment of animals. What's the consumer supposed to do. A grass-fed is nothing like that. All the time about milk grass-fed melker locally raised milk etc. Is there some repository of information that can help. You know.

"Thrifty meal plan of today and you have to do for years. That's that's right before next year. So the biden administration kicked into overdrive when they came in and the thrifty food plan has been revised joe. It's going by that that they have the excuse it in fact will mandate to increase these benefits. It's a well known fact. That families on snap often run out in the third week of the month and always by the fourth week so they have to go to dollar stores. You know there's awful aspects that families who relied on school breakfast and school lunch during the pandemic have an ad that so it's been much harder for them to stretch their food dollars of. At also just the decrease in income during the pandemic it mandated for any thinking person increase. But this has been insufficiently noted in the stream of afghanistan delta variant which is a very important theme. It's a huge difference and one of my idols is dr hillary seligman at the university of california san francisco. Really research visits to national leader. And she said this is the most important change in the half century. History of this mater of the modern program staff. it's youth the other enormous and overlooked. A problem is like something like a third to a half of massachusetts residents who are eligible for snap. Don't enroll there are several reasons and the globe did a piece about this just recently. One of the most poignant is that older adults think. Young families need this. I don't and i should not be taking food out of their mouths. They don't quite realize in there right minded thinking. This is an entitlement program. Federal benefits extend to however many people need it. that's the meaning of entitlement program and also people in low wage jobs. They're making money but not much. They think will actually have an income. So i'm not eligible. They are eligible quickly thinking about a possible. Ripple effect is this at all also in investment in the agriculture farming sector investment in everything. It's an investment in agriculture. It's an investment in the retail sector. I'm making it up. But i think that my dean doria motza therrien and jim isn't here to ding me for mentioning. Tufts friedman school. Where i teach has estimated thumbs sort of benefit of three dollars for every dollar spent for local economies so it goes back to agriculture and it definitely goes back to local merchants and farmers markets. There's often the double value food coupon but snap is very important stimulus. It also increases greatly increases the income of national retailers. Because they all take snap. We're talking to corby. Kummer our food expert. Maybe you can decipher the story for me about ways. Showing you restaurants selling discounted. Leftover food is not happening here. But it's happening other places with this app too good to go. I didn't really understand what was happening that you can go pick up food. Well maybe you understand it better than i do. What is going on with ways and this app corby kummer. What is going on with ways. They got themselves so good publicity by announcing this healthful socially responsible overlay. They're mapping in here. We are talking about it. What is that is you know that often tech teams including at mit would come up..

"You really wanna do unless you prove vaccination but again that was a federal that was country's government saying we're going to make it easy for missing because we have a nationally authorized database. That makes it easy for everybody. Used the very same system. I have to disagree with one thing. You said corby. All the experts are saying and i have a hard time doing this not to shame people i think this is not a shaming technique. It isn't like there's a lineup and you say okay you ten people. Those of your vaccinate can come in the rest cannot. It's basically a privilege that's been granted to somebody you're vaccinated. Come on down and if you're not no one's going to know just you can't come in period so i think it's the the perfect in many ways. Non shaming technique regardless new york city stands alone and i hope they don't stand alone much further. We're talking to corby kummer. So i don't normally think of tyson's foods is leading the way in terms of Worker healthcare but they're they're mandating vaccines for their workforce united states that the people frontline people in the office people. So what do you make this. There's a lot of better late than never. In this story. Every meatpacker should have mandated back. Saination the minute vaccine available. If they were among they and really healthcare workers and we're only seeing hospitals and healthcare systems mandated in the past. Few weeks shockingly. But they needed to get out of everything because they were among the most shameful employers even more shameful was the trump administration which made them essential workers so there were like no protections for the workers at robbed them of their rights. Now tyson his saying we're gonna make it easy for you to get vaccinated. We've already given you a couple of hours of paid time to.

"The attorney general of the state of new york said that batali boston Permitted intolerable work environment and shameful behavior. So i think that the there's many many stories of women being a trading notes on how they could have different routes to the bathroom to avoid catcalls harassment from the male staff on their way to the bathroom being told by managers to get breast implants. They would look better at this kind of intolerable not uncommon but that doesn't make it any better work environment for women The larger picture is first of all that attorney. General big important state is calling out in very arch terms a work environment. And saying we're not gonna tolerate this victim big high-profile company and i hope what she said someplace else. Haven't read the whole statement is they are not alone. This is part of the restaurant industry and it has stop. We're going to pay attention to this attack from the really awful individuals stories there with a very very strong quote thought which was one of the participants in the lawsuit and she'd said even though twenty thousand over five years is laughable to most. It feels like twenty million to women like us they ought. It's so hard for them to go on the record and give testimony it takes so much courage to join the boots that this kind of recognition of our full statement by letitia james is what should influence the restaurant industry. So what is mario batali doing. Now i don't know except kim silverton who wrote this update in the new york times about six hundred thousand dollars. Settlement of the company had done a piece over year ago. It's free pedantic And also new york magazine reporter went out to traverse city the traverse city area. Where of. China has a has a nice of lake house and he's just been there. I think doing community work thinking about what it can do for charity. But to my knowledge he hasn't been in new york. He's been there and michelle trying to rebuild his life. so can he ever rebuilt his life by coming back the restaurant business or is this. Just it for him you know. I don't know. I would doubt the restaurant business. I would think it would have to be uncharitable. Works in cultivating young people out of remove in using his influence help an association that he doesn't run Health young workers. So there's lots of lots of things you could do. But as far as lending his name his visibility. That'll be problem out. Yeah because there's always that question of when if you paid your debt and is this a life sentence or is this not a life sentence not a settled. Question is not a question many people in different cases. Yeah and i should say that. We mentioned boston. That trials coming up at least the next next phase of that. The next hearing is september fifteenth so as that continues for him right here in this city for what happened here. Corby thank you very much as always beautiful background they.

I think among the people who are willing to pay these stratospheric prices. There will probably be a growing market for these vegan menu. By the way. I'm so The reason we're talking about this is i don't know pre said this before you just did denver. I wrote this great piece in the boston globe which we meant to credit and and fell to by the way doesn't she make the point that when jamie jamie business quoted that copa means. Isn't that ham or some such thing it's colder it's kind it's kind of cut of pork that comes from. I think the neck on the shoulder and they'll immediately correct me on this. Yes indeed it is me but he claims and boy. Do i want to go in and drive us now. That it's very easy to have a meatless menu copa. It wasn't when they first opened. This gets to the whole idea of what we're why we're talking about this because daniel home is going to set trends for other restaurants and it is going to trickle down the idea that he's made this a fashionable luxury item. That people want that means douglas williams. Who's a you know. A fashionable luxury guy and a leader in boston. Now he'll do it then. Jamie incredibly influential will increase the offerings. And it will become much more widespread by the way. We're going to take kohl's in a little while from people about whether or not They are ready for the Meatless dining experience. I just wanted to corby if you've investigated whether or not the guy from the hot. What's the guy daniel was. His name is still dating. Lauren powell with steve jobs once yes oh oh. Yes corby investigate. It's public is on the record. Yes on the record. Well isn't that good okay. So this this stunned me this next story. I'm from the country. Does such great stuff dot org bang thing you that we had some non compete things in in brookline recently at a yoga studio of all places. Because you don't make very much money yoga studio. This story is talking about biden. President biden going after non compete clauses which impact even fast food workers. So some poor guy. There was the the those infamous story about a jimmy. Johns non compete controversy. That so fast food joint. I guess where. The person couldn't couldn't work within three miles of the jimmy.

I was younger based on the cruelty thing. If they paid me. I mean it is so savage. It is unbelievable but we have to think. Where do you draw the line. Because for example the chef dan barber in his third play. He's mentally and blowing of blue hill He with a food writer. Based in denmark. An american went down to Lisa abend went to a farm in spain that was very good about a raising corn. And the best kind of feed for these ducks did not or feed them but gave them very good flavor producing Grain and then and lots of it but they got to eat as much as they wanted and then sold delivers what she says.

Because he says that i am actually on my way right now to go to eleven madison to go have a three hundred and thirty five dollar for myself of course plant maize because we don't say vegan anymore because planned base. Is the euphemism for those of us. Who don't like the term vegan. You know we talked about eleven madison. A couple of weeks ago in which many people think is the best restaurant in america. I said you. Three hundred and thirty. Five dollars is an embarrassment or disgrace. And i have to say you did a fairly good job gorby of convincing me. I think you said something like well. Would you spend three hundred dollars on a great experience doing so. And so. And i said yes. How about three hundred and the answer is it's an experience however is america ready. I'm gonna upset all the vegan slash plant plant based people is america ready for this restaurant essentially not partially plant based this. Is there going one hundred percent or are they not going one hundred percent. And it is a gimmick that has won eleven madison park and daniel helmet chef international publicity. This is very hard. It's very hard to get a lot of liberty as a white male shift period In a fine dining restaurant which is really going out of fashion at all Never i did a very thoughtful. Very good column.

"This is pathetic. I know how to pronounce this now. Lifetimes fast walker off wa- gras is that okay. Both of you know been humiliated. Explain how you get for gras to begin with and then tell us what they're doing here. Let's go into cell culture me so we talk all the time about plant-based meat beyond me. Impossible foods those are made of various kinds of plants not animal protein at the same time but but much slower on the development and to market curve very fast the venture capital curb but slow in getting to the market. Are these spell culture meets in which you take a couple of cells of the actual mate you provide lots of growing media really ideal Five ways to raise strong healthy cell media and you get A a little wad of me. So there's lots of movement on the burger front. There's movement on the chicken fronts. Singapore has already licensed to sell cultured chicken but the reason that flos gras is so Well suited to this cell. Culturing is it has no texture. It's just g- wishy paste. And why do i put it so unappetizing leave. That's the big challenge of growing out. These cells and culturing is trying to get anything like the texture must thin us bat gnawing at the bone that is so many years off but just being able to grow out a bunch of these. It's usually soft and squishy death. Why would be in burgers. That's why i've been some kind of pate but this is a bad day it's meant to be solved. So they're doing this with goose livers also. It's a great first product to try to win. Customer acceptance and general regulator approval because a animal rights activists have successfully blocked the raising in selling a flog raw. I in california than it was passed in two thousand nineteen in new york. State of new york happens to be a big of the chief u. s. producer of farm for gras. So they are in big trouble. Because as of next year new year's it will be illegal in both new york and california and the european union might be outlawing it and so maybe did you describe yet how they what they do to the goose or the doctor whatever. It is to get them to dog gras already. Did you say that are running. They put us donald into their gullit's or down grain. However when i say that it is very discussing his animal rights. They're such a lively debate about you know whether sort of like right back. His asians the gates really liked it. Seriously there are a lot of farmers who say you know. This is good for the goose. They developed this capacity to be able to store excess fat ins unbelievable. It is unbelievable but there are these against him nonetheless. It is you know extensively a cruel thing to stick this thing down an animal's gullit and force all this food down as color is illegal in massachusetts yet. They you say that. I know you mentioned yours. No not that. I know of it. The only one. I know that we're past for california new york. Those were the two biggest states that produced and consumed it and by the way nali that they liked it. But this know stefan shambaugh. Who is the chef of la ponta. Something in michelin-starred restaurant and france says it also it the criticism from animals rights groups. He says is misguided. Because maybe this is a variation what you're saying before this overfeeding is essentially a mimicking of a natural reality centuries ago. He said giessen.

"Cost accounting A guy named patrick. I can't remember his last name. In england star hole institute about true cost accounting. It is caught on here and rockefeller has given it Real heft by studying. What is true cost accounting phil. What does it mean. It means if you look at the cost of mcdonald's burger and you add in to healthcare costs of treating diabetes and other obesity linked to chronic food illnesses. You'd start get an idea of what it costs. The healthcare system and environmental pollution and waste from all that food waste and methane emissions. We were just talking about. If you factor all of these external costs into the actual cost of mcdonald's burger or a fast food meal. You'd start to understand the cheap subsidized. Food is not cheap and that we are the ones who were subsidizing it with these elevated healthcare costs and then a great line in in here about the layers of subsidies in a sugary beverage but no substitute for the apple. Guess maybe there's some apps substitute for the apple but maybe there aren't but that this is one of the great ironies that corn. If i may interrupt as of the big five crops that receive.

Well first of all hannaford had its guiding stars program. They have been a leader in nutrition. What is guiding stars. It's a whole bunch of attributes of what goes into your food and whether it's healthy or not so they launched a whole series of national supermarkets grind shoppers the same kind of guidance and now states are taking this into their own hands and they are saying if if the feds are doing enough on food waste. We're going to help ourselves And they are passing bills to force restaurants and big food service institutions to donate food rather than throwing it away long overdue and a great idea to pass these bills state-by-state so so tell people why food waste to be deal with. Climate change has to do with the methane. I think right that's right. I forgot the lake ally the second or third most contributing we know about couch burps remember. It's up burks marjorie. That end up as being huge methane. Reducers and very bad beef is bad.

"Of food policy an industry is corby comer. Corby is the executive director of the food and society policy program at the aspen institute. Senior editor at the atlantic and a senior lecturer. The friedman school of nutrition science and policy. Hello corby and you know when i got nervous about sharks on the cape is when the atlantic ran a story about it. That got me nervous. I see local. News counts for nothing. We you jim. Only national news outlets corey. Good cordless started out with this new story about mcdonald's what they're trying to what they're doing to increase workers they're going for eleven bucks to seventeen bucks to start and a bunch of other stuff. This is such. I mean it's not a funny. It's long overdue reckoning of a fast food chains and big restaurants saying We have to start treating our employees like human beings. i mean they were training like human beings. I don't wanna be unfair to mcdonald's but the understand that to get people back because as big employees shortage for restaurants they have to pay them more and it turns out that unemployment insurance sick. Leave the you're really important for employees and the whole restaurant. Industry is up one point. Three million workers lower than when the pandemic began Because many people are just finding higher paying jobs. They're leaving. I think that in another story. We've been reading an employee. Said it took me literally a day to find a new job when she quit her restaurant job in the morning. So the benefits are better. What does mcdonald's doing which is almost one hundred percent ninety-five percent owned by franchisees. The franchisees are agreeing. That they will bump up starting pay from eleven to seventeen as you said marjorie. And they're going to be starting with eight hundred thousand people Or they'll be starting to five thousand of the eight hundred thousand people working in the chain and leaders all over the chain or saying we have to sign this pledge to pay more minimum wage. It's not just more minimum wage. You say this tuition in some cases paid time off to the story. I think that's only going to be a certain number of franchisees who were saying a paid time off to help. Tuition costs draw enough workers to increase the image.

"Jim i expect <Silence> you to be <Speech_Male> with your <Speech_Male> union Organizational <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> skills <Speech_Male> and background <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> completely <Speech_Male> average by this is <Speech_Male> a disaster owned <Speech_Male> by the way we should be clear <Speech_Male> that the statutes <Speech_Male> corp <Speech_Male> he's talking about the california <Speech_Male> statute <Speech_Male> only allowed access <Speech_Male> to <Speech_Male> organize in non <Speech_Male> work kinds before <Speech_Male> work one <Speech_Male> showers. <Speech_Male> It didn't <Speech_Male> impact <Speech_Male> the work <Speech_Male> of any <Speech_Male> of the farm <Speech_Male> workers in these <Speech_Male> places. And <Speech_Male> as well. <Speech_Male> John roberts in his <Speech_Male> majority decision <Speech_Male> talked about <Speech_Male> it as an invasion <Speech_Male> as you said <Speech_Male> I think it was <Speech_Male> the brier. <Speech_Male> The cambridge <Speech_Male> show socio justice <Speech_Male> in the supreme court <Speech_Male> who basically <Speech_Male> said it's nothing <Speech_Male> like an invasion. <Speech_Male> It is a temporary <Speech_Male> access <Speech_Male> to their properties <Speech_Male> so that the <Speech_Male> workers here <Speech_Male> arguments which <Speech_Male> the employer <Speech_Male> can cause them <Speech_Male> to hear twenty <Speech_Male> four seven <Speech_Male> about their <Speech_Male> rights as workers <Speech_Male> to organize in this country. <Speech_Male> It's a disaster. We're talking <Speech_Male> to corby <Speech_Male> come. We're going to move to one other <Speech_Male> thing they'll <SpeakerChange> be <Speech_Male> core because we're short on <Silence> time. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> Are you <Speech_Male> as someone who's been <Speech_Male> writing about an involved <Speech_Male> in the food industry <Speech_Male> forever. <Speech_Male> Do you think <Speech_Male> it is required <Speech_Male> that if <Speech_Male> a major <Speech_Male> chain a worldwide <Speech_Male> chain <Speech_Male> thousands of outlets <Speech_Male> advertises <Speech_Male> a tuna <Speech_Male> sandwich. I want you to <Speech_Male> listen to this question carefully <Speech_Male> because it's an important <Speech_Male> and difficult one. <Speech_Male> Is it necessary <Speech_Male> that there <Speech_Male> be any tuna <Speech_Male> in the tuna <Speech_Male> sandwich <Speech_Male> you can start with. Yes <Speech_Male> or no and then <Speech_Male> explain why. I'm asking <Speech_Male> if you'd like. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> Is it <Speech_Male> a requirement. <Speech_Male> Yes <Speech_Male> okay <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> why am <Speech_Male> i asking that question <Speech_Male> corby kummer <Speech_Male> because the new <Speech_Male> york times did a <Speech_Male> sting operation on <Speech_Male> subway and <Speech_Male> said we have sent <Speech_Male> out to a fancy <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> dna lab <Speech_Male> doing the tea <Speech_Male> cr tests <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> samples from <Speech_Male> your so called <Speech_Male> tuna <SpeakerChange> subs <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> nothing. <Speech_Male> Nothing that is detectable <Speech_Male> as guna <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> So usa <Speech_Male> today did a fact check <Speech_Male> of this <SpeakerChange> instead. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Well you know <Speech_Male> subway's <Speech_Male> very plausible <Speech_Male> when they say it's because <Speech_Male> we d nature <Speech_Male> the protein by <Speech_Male> eating it and <Speech_Male> we heated <Speech_Male> it and we cooked <Speech_Male> it. And we send <Speech_Male> it out to our <Speech_Male> chains and our <Speech_Male> our franchise <Speech_Male> locations <Speech_Male> and it's <Speech_Male> guna but we d <Speech_Male> nature the protein <Speech_Male> you and your fancy. <Speech_Male> Dna <Speech_Male> tests aren't gonna find <Speech_Male> it no matter <Speech_Male> how much you try <Speech_Male> to revive <Speech_Male> the dna <Speech_Male> because we denatured <Speech_Male> it in <Speech_Male> our cooking process <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I think <Speech_Male> this was kind <Speech_Male> of silly. Because <Speech_Male> i believe it started out <Speech_Male> as tuna. What's <Speech_Male> more interesting <Speech_Male> is trying to <Speech_Male> hold subway <Speech_Male> up to. Its claims <Speech_Male> about sustainability. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> it's they say it's <Speech_Male> one hundred percent <Speech_Male> sustainably caught <Speech_Male> skipjack yellowfin <Speech_Male> tuna. <Speech_Male> And there's another <Speech_Male> court filing <Speech_Male> in which plaintiffs <Speech_Male> are saying. No <Speech_Male> that's a lie. <Speech_Male> I'm much more <Speech_Male> interested in that. But <Speech_Male> i think there was <Speech_Male> tuna of a sort <Speech_Male> gibb <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> and within a test <Speech_Male> on the damn tuna. <Silence> How do you know <SpeakerChange> what was <Speech_Male> in it. <Speech_Male> Is emma scientific <Speech_Male> expert in.

"Of dollars from the government. Twenty eight point. Six billion just for restaurants in the restaurant revitalization fund. This was the biggest victory ever and then to make it even better. The biden administration said we are going to open all applications to women people of color and veterans. They were shut out of the paycheck protection. The ppp act the first time a big businesses knocking and they opted. They vacuumed up the money. We're not making that mistake again. We're going to prioritize women. People of color and veterans and white own restaurants goaded by Fronts including stephen miller the odious former trump adviser found some white restaurant owners to say. Hey this is prejudice. I'm not gonna get in the back of the line. Just because i'm white. I need this money just as much as anyone else did. And in the case of some of the why donors. They didn't need the money as much as anyone else. But they were able to get a ruling that would a halt to all of the handing applications because of course all of them went all the money went pretty soon and then people like amanda cohen. A dirt candy at done a victory dance because not only her case was she one of the leaders who got this asked but she was also approved for her loan application and other people that that we read about people color veterans women and then they got a us kidding memo from the small business administration. Saying we're sorry. This ruling has made us has forced to reevaluate all the applications in a sort of flying to weather. You check the box for asian so a story in in the boston globe by genucel nanos. Anissa guard gardezi really really well reported. A most people are saying no. This isn't happening and we're not getting this and it's it's it's an outrage. It's a reversal of what the intentions of the vitamin station work. Well can we continue the bad news just for a second spring court fairly predictably six conservatives versus three liberal-leaning justices knocked down a provision. That gave organizers access the farmworkers that essentially was pretty critical in an industry where it's very hard to reach people and their seasonal and that sort of thing briefly describe it and less briefly. Describe what you perceive to be the impact. Corby kummer union organizers. Were going onto farms and five in the morning before the actual shifts in with megaphones. They were trying to drum up support for union organization and part of this was they were given rights by a california law. That was enacted. I don't find the date right now on the story but it was too over herm. The federal law in the nineteen thirties that gave union access to the workday but excluded farmworkers out of sheer racism. And so a california had tried to protect and make up for this by allowing farm workers. After cesar chavez in the sixties strikes united farm workers it said a migrant workers all workers should be allowed to hear unionization messages and several large packers food appeal brought it all the way up to the supreme court and six to three. The supreme court said that's right that's invading the personal property the private property of these farm of producers and out unions..

"That's very successful in your restaurant but bring it to the supermarket. You know there's many a slip twix hamas and lip in the case of this story by jane black former food editor of boston magazine. So let's have a little low interest right here who writes beautiful articles for the times for the washington post. She's based in washington. This is about wanted to take for little sesame. A terrific chain that had established itself for very good middle eastern food Serve to workers in downtown. Washington will have good they package up their hamas and so it's very entertaining the there's larger points which i'll get to the entertaining. Part is make. How do you make the chick peas not taste too acidic or too soapy and i think the answer was you put him into a pressure cooker and then you can see them with real lemon juice because if you you'd baking soda as lots of people jim. I'm sure you make your own chick peas which take three to four hours. You actually thank you very much there you are and do you recall the baking soda part. No it was frequent in the production at the little sesame chain but when they hashed her eyes which you have to do for food safety rules suddenly that baking stouter Baking soda made it taste very sour. So they kept experimenting. So it's six to figure out how to make something palatable and look good because there was a weird slick during the pasteurization method. They chose which is high pressure. That is much less destructive to flavor than high heat but what was oddly. Great this weird slick at the top of the package would be will open their container of hubby's so what they decided was. We'll put a little tomato jam on the top of this because that won't look bad people open it. It won't look yucky to look delicious tomato jam on top of their hamas but in any case very entertaining story about what it was like for a little sesame package at some uh and now you can all go into whole foods and look for the larger question is bids was a way to increase income. And i think we'll be talking about restaurants now have to earn away the go orders. That kept them alive. Now that they're reopening but what a restaurants going to do to stay alive after the pandemic one of the new revenue streams was a package food product. Speaking a whole foods market it. Yeah i used to believe everything. I heard on a radio show if i respected the people on it but i'm listening to this radio show last week actually had you on it. Corby none i think about. It was hosted by margaret. Jared bowen or something. Now i'm in trouble too and you guys were talking about something called not milk a new product and we've talked about oatmeal talked about female. Whatever and not milk sold a whole foods. that's the name of the thing apparently The name clever. Because it's not milk but according to the experts not you guys but i think the people quoted in the new york times story said it tastes exactly like milk. Well i learned after buying it. You want it's cold not milk exactly because it pays nothing like milk now. The good news. Since you're asking for a product review or be. I can see it on your face. Unlike with the new york times said that when you put in your coffee it curdled. They didn't use the word curdle. But it separates or whatever that means didn't separate at all. I put it directly in hot coffee. Then i put it in cold. Coffee put in the microwave is doing real experimentation. It didn't colonel and it's okay but let me be the first to say on this particular program..

We've kind of understood them until this year to have a particular job which is to take in food taking donations. You have volunteers. And then distribute food to the community or provided for people who come and gather but why and how are foodbank beginning to rethink what they are and what they should be doing after the pandemic you know first of all. It's such a good question second. There's a new policy center that did a survey of foodbanks during and after the pandemic and they are finally getting on board with the idea that what are the root causes of this hunger rather than just saying it's intractable. We're going to deliver meals to as many people as we can make it as efficient as possible. Get as much money as we can. What are we going to do about actual distribution. What happens when we don't have as much money as we do. Very in after the pandemic and how can we help the reality of people's needs and what they're looking at. Is things like well of all in the short term pandemic. edt benefit extensions universal school. Lunch dinner things of this study from the duke world law policy Amo with it really should continue for months and years to come but second How do you really help. Reevaluate the whole food bank experienced one of the ideas is allow people to chop for what they want. Don't just give them what you're able to get. Find out from them what they want they need make it easy and dignified for them to be able to get there for example at night The our should suit them. Not the staff of the food pantry. You should have the food pantry. Gets there called. Educate the people who operate the food pantry on what they need and win they needed.
