Where’s The Beef?: Mayor’s New Green Initiative Leaves Out Food

19 05 2010

Yesterday, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson announced an effort to make the Sacramento Region “The Emerald Valley,” the center of the state and country’s green and social justice movements.

The exciting new “Green Initiative”  will work to tackle problems around water, energy, urban design and waste & recycling.

Unfortunately, the Mayor forget to include food. The Food Movement has been growing in the Region, uniting efforts to support our local economy and keep our bodies and communities healthy.  We’re sure it’s an oversight and hope the Mayor will work to make food a priority throughout the other environmental efforts.
