this is politics, but it feels like it should be posted in the Mind Numbed Stupidity forum.
Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke called for the establishment of farm-to-table restaurants in every community to combat poor nutrition.

Farm-to-table restaurants are part of a socially-conscious movement favored by wealthy urbanites that often feature small, elaborately designed fare from local farms and are typically very expensive.


"Beto says he wants farm to table restaurants in *every* community when asked about poor nutrition in many places," reported Washington Post journalist Annie Linskey, who live-tweeted the event.


Another Washington Post journalist, Dave Weigel, did not relay the paraphrased exchange, but noted that the topic of poverty-linked "food deserts" was more fully addressed by O'Rourke.

"Beto gets a question about nutrition; he has a very handy series of answers based on conversations with people in food deserts, says farm bill should factor in nutrition more than it does," Weigel wrote.

Food deserts are generally poor rural or urban areas where access to fresh produce is limited or nonexistent.

When an up-and-coming politician/fascist like Beto comes along I want to know how he will fix the potholes before I entertain ideas how he will use a govt mandate to force expensive restaurants into city ghettos.

Well, one way to address the issue of poor nutrition is by highly restricting the sorts of foods that can be purchased using food stamps.  I.e., no junk foods.

but noted that the topic of poverty-linked "food deserts"

Maybe if the residents of these "food  deserts" didn't rob or burn down businesses in thier area it would get better. Or possibly replace food  stamps and EBT cards with, meat and veggies for them to cook.
