Food News: Packing Lunch is Banned & Global Food Shortages

by Vince

Let’s start with the first interesting story: A Chicago school has banned packing lunches in hopes of having kids eat school lunch (which they label as more healthy). I wonder how legal this is, but I do know that schools give dozens of choices to eat and may be better in some (not all) cases for kids. (PicturedNPR – it comes from a slideshow of school foods from around the world)

Also, foreign countries are now buying land in Africa to grow crops for themselves.
