Thursday, July 27, 2023 – The Menu: federal ag decisions, Native bakery in Raleigh, and the (no) salmon festival

Native American food sovereignty experts will soon have more say into how the U.S. Department of Agriculture approaches everything from crop subsidies to low-income nutrition programs. The agency’s new tribal advisory committee is the latest in a series of steps to add more muscle into its Indigenous Food Sovereignty Initiative. Plus, a new Lumbee-owned bakery in North Carolina’s capital city is both a spot to pick up tasty macrons and an incubator for other bakers – and the Yurok Tribe’s annual salmon festival goes ahead without any salmon because of declining fish stocks. That and more on The Menu with our resident foodie Andi Murphy.
