Last week, we summarized the morsels of food policy publicly stated in the candidate platforms.
– Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
– Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)
– Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)
It’s still very hard to tell where these GOP presidential candidates stand on food issues. What do the presidential candidates really want to do with food policy?
This week, we’d note that there remain gaps throughout these policies, or lack thereof. We’re listing resources that frame the most important questions from both sides of the political persuasion.
More than most other issues, food remains foundational to the wider issues in the GOP & Democratic 2016 primary & eventually, presidential elections. These include economic, environmental, labour & foreign policy questions.
