It was the clearest signal yet: Barack Obama intends to make food policy matters one of his core issues as he wades into retirement.
During an appearance at the Global Food Innovation Summit in Milano, Italy, the former US president sat down with his friend and former White House food policy czar Sam Kass to discuss the role food production plays in climate change. In addressing food-related issues, Obama is taking a page out of his wife’s book. Former US first lady Michelle Obama made school meals and healthy eating priorities during her time in the White House. Now it appears the powerful couple intend to continue actively discussing food choices and their impact on the planet as they begin their lives as private citizens.climate-change ] [ obama ]
