By Andrew Gannon, The Associated PressScience is a great tool for teaching kids about science and for helping them learn more about how their food works.
But it’s also a big problem for the USDA.
More than a century after its founding, the agency has lost sight of its mission to help the world’s food supply thrive.
Its job is to protect and conserve the environment, the environment is a primary value in this country, and the nation is in dire need of better food and farming practices.
With more than 200 million people on the planet, the U.S. has more food than the rest of the world combined.
The world’s supply is in a dire state, and more than half of it comes from a few countries.
In the last five years, the USDA has tried to address the food crisis by adopting some of the most controversial and destructive policies in the country’s history, from a strict requirement that food be labeled “organic” to the ban on genetically modified food.
The agency has also implemented new laws that will keep more Americans from farming, including a $25,000-a-year fee to farmers to pay for training and certification.
Yet the agency is failing to protect food that is not grown by people who are truly in need of it.
The problem, according to USDA chief scientist Robert P. Jones, is that the agency can’t really keep track of how much food it’s buying and how much it’s feeding the hungry.
It also can’t keep track if the food it buys is actually nutritious or is just good for us, Jones told The Associated
