Local Philly Politics: Soda Tax

Posted: July 19, 2016 by Nazim in Taxation

From the insightful blog post regarding the Philadelphia Soda tax linked below:

What do I suggest? The federal government should either stay out of agriculture entirely, or start to subsidize local CSA’s like GreensgrowWeaver’s Way, and Philly Cow Share. We should be spending money teaching lower income families how to cook, and encouraging those on the SNAP Program to shop at local farmer’s markets. It wouldn’t be such an outrageous proposition to start connecting individual people to the land again.
