Professor Norman Wirzba examines food as gift, rather than commodity
Subscribe to our page to see every lecture at CHQ this season! Visit our website at chq.org for more information about our lectures. From the Chautauquan Daily, by Kelly Powell: When Norman Wirzba was preparing for his Interfaith Lecture, he read over the Department of Religion’s instructions. He noted he would be speaking in the Hall of Philosophy, an open-air pavilion, and was advised he might be competing with birds or squirrels for attention. But when Wirzba, professor of theology and ecology at Duke Divinity School, agreed to lecture, he had no idea he would be competing with a solar eclipse. Wirzba’s Monday talk, “A Spirituality of Eating,” was the first in Week Nine’s Interfaith Lecture Series, “Food and Faith,” and occurred during the solar eclipse’s regional peak.

World Food Programme - P4P progress so far very light
As the world's largest humanitarian agency, WFP is a major staple food buyer. In 2010, WFP bought US$1.25 billion worth of food commodities -- more than 80 percent of this in developing countries. WFP buys locally in developing countries when its criteria of price, quality and quantity can be met. P4P is a logical continuation of this local procurement with the intent to achieve a higher developmental gain with WFP's procurement footprint by buying increasingly in a smallholder-friendly way. Through P4P, WFP's demand provides smallholder farmers in 21 pilot countries with a greater incentive to invest in their production, as they have the possibility to sell to a reliable buyer and receive a fair price for their crops. It is envisioned that in the wake of WFP purchasing in a more smallholder-friendly way, other buyers of staple commodities including Governments and the private sector will also increasingly be able to buy from smallholders. P4P at the same time invests in capacity building at country level in areas such as post-harvest handling or storage, which will yield sustainable results in boosting national food security over the long term. The five year pilot P4P (2009 - 2013)[1] rests on three pillars: i. Demand: Through P4P, WFP tests innovative ways to buy staple food and promote marketing opportunities for smallholder farmers. ii. Supply: P4P links WFP's demand with the expertise and resources of partners who support farmers to achieve better yields, reduce their losses after the harvest and improve the quality of their staple crops. iii. Learning and Sharing: P4P will gather and share lessons on effective approaches to connect smallholder farmers to markets in a sustainable way and share them widely with stakeholders.

President Trump replaces EBT Foodstamps with Food Boxes
 Trump wants to cut back on food stamps for the poor and substitute with packaged food deliveries Ylan Mui | @ylanmui Published 8:35 AM ET Tue, 13 Feb 2018Updated 4:36 PM ET Tue, 13 Feb 2018CNBC.com A proposed food delivery program would replace about half of food stamp benefits for households who qualify for the boxes.The plan would put the U.S. government directly in charge of what goes on the dinner plates of more than 16 million low-income households.Critics say the program would be inefficient and costly, and would end up reducing benefits for low-income families and communities.  Move over, Blue Apron. Uncle Sam could soon be delivering "America's Harvest Box." The Trump administration is proposing replacing a portion of the federal food stamp program with actual boxes of food delivered to recipients' front doors, putting the U.S. government directly in charge of what goes on the dinner plates of more than 16 million low-income households. White House budget director Mick Mulvaney likened the model to that of the dominant meal-kit delivery service, Blue Apron, and called it one of the most "innovative" ideas in the president's budget. "I don't want to steal somebody's copyright," Mulvaney told reporters Monday. "You actually receive the food instead of receive the cash." The program would be a vast logistical undertaking for a federal bureaucracy that President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized as unwieldy and wasteful. The White House said the new boxes would go to households qualifying for $90 or more per month in food stamps, representing about 81 percent of those participating in what is formally known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Currently, SNAP recipients can choose what they spend the money on while shopping at any approved retailer. According to a summary of the proposal compiled by the Agriculture Department and obtained by CNBC, the boxes would replace about half of the current program's cash benefits. All food would be grown domestically and include "shelf-stable" items such as juice, pasta, canned meat and beans. The USDA estimated it would save $129 billion over a decade, driven in part by the government's unique purchasing power. "It lowers the cost to us because we can buy prices at wholesale, whereas [beneficiaries] have to buy it at retail," Mulvaney said. "It also makes sure they're getting nutritious food. So we're pretty excited about that." But the proposal drew swift opposition from many fronts – including the $840 billion supermarket industry, where food stamps drive 7.5 percent of sales, according to Customer Growth Partners. The firm estimated that Walmart alone reaps more than one-fifth of all food stamp sales. "Perhaps this proposal would save money in one account, but based on our decades of experience in the program, it would increase costs in other areas that would negate any savings," FMI chief public policy officer Jennifer Hatcher said. "Retailers are looking to the administration to reduce red tape and regulations, not increase them with proposals such as this one." The food box also faces an uncertain political future as the Republican chairmen of the House and Senate agriculture committees signaled their skepticism. The White House budget also calls for $58 billion in cuts to farm and insurance subsidies over 10 years. "The task at hand is to produce a Farm Bill for the benefit of our farmers, ranchers, consumers and other stakeholders. This budget, as with every other president's budget before, will not prevent us from doing that job," Texas Rep. Michael Conaway and Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts said in a joint statement. "We are committed to maintaining a strong safety net for agricultural producers during these times of low prices and uncertain markets and continuing to improve our nation's nutrition programs." According to the USDA summary, states would have "substantial flexibility" to distribute the food boxes and could use commercial delivery services. The White House also argued that the government already is providing direct food aid to many households through programs such as free and reduced-price school lunches and a food delivery program for senior citizens. But Stacy Dean, vice president for food assistance policy at the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said only about 630,000 people participate in the delivery service for seniors — a minuscule number compared with the vast apparatus that would be required to administer the food boxes. She also challenged the administration's claim that it could save billions by purchasing the food directly. The end result, she said, would likely simply be fewer benefits for those who need them most. "When combined with cutting health insurance and other core supports, it's just a devastating blow to low-income individuals and communities," she said. Here's the USDA's summary of the "America's Harvest Box" proposal: "USDA America's Harvest Box is a bold, i
Ellen's Story
In order to ensure that all Ohioans have access to food, it takes a combination of the public and private sectors, including federal programs like SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) and TEFAP (USDA commodities). At the state level, there is the Ohio Foods Program (OFP) which helps provide more shelf stable, local, and nutritious foods for charitable hunger organizations to distribute and the Agriculture Clearance Program (ACP) that helps to get fresh produce into to the hands of those in need. In the private sector. In addition, we have national and local donors, food drives, volunteers, and partner sponsorships for programs like BackPack (weekend bags of food sent home for kids living in severe food insecure households) that help to keep food in cupboards. Take away one of these programs and the foundation of making sure not one person goes without enough eat will start to crumble. In many cases, programs like these make the difference between whether a child eats or has school supplies, whether an adult eats or has enough gas to get to work, or whether a senior eats or gets their life-saving medicine.
