Four Reasons for Foodies to Occupy Wall Street


For my regular readers who may have missed it, I had a longer piece on this website’s “Environment” channel laying out four main reasons that the Occupy Wall Street protests should focus on Big Food as much as Big Finance. It generated a fair amount of buzz last week, landing on the front pages of both Reddit and MetaFilter. Check it out.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
