Those High Priced Veggies Causing Problems

Chuck Zimmerman

USDA ERS Report“You have got to be kidding me.” That’s the first thing that came to mind when I saw the tease for a new report by USDA’s Economic Research Service titled, “Metropolitan Area Food Prices and Children’s Weight Gain.” Basically it was conducted to see if there’s a link between high priced fruits and vegetables and fat kids. Let’s get rid of the term “overweight” please.


A Milestone In The Broadcasters Letter

Chuck Zimmerman

USDA's Broadcaster LetterI’d like to thank my good friend Larry Quinn, Assistant Director
Office of Communications, USDA for mentioning us and AgWired in his “milestones” listing in the latest issue of his weekly “Broadcasters Letter”. Larry is one of the people who makes dealing with the government enjoyable. In fact, all the people in the USDA communications department are very friendly and will go out of their way to help you out.

USDA, ZimmCast
