On Tuesday, February 24, Food Democracy Now! met with Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack in his office at the U.S. Department of Agriculture to present a petition signed by more than 87,000 Americans calling for sustainable change at the USDA. The petition was originally created to ask then President-elect Obama to consider candidates for the secretary position with a grassroots background in promoting sustainable agriculture.
