Subject: Food bank alerts Date: Thu, 14 Oct 1999 22:12:35 -0500 From: "Robert Waldrop" To: Community Food Security Coalition

Three food security alerts:

1. Letter to Second Harvest, from the Center for Y2k and Society, regarding vulnerabilities in the nation's food supply. Has some interesting information regarding efforts by the Center (and by Congress) to investigate the corporate food production system, and reports that such efforts have been stymied by resistence from the corporations.

2. A short briefing paper regarding impacts of Y2k on the food chain.

3. Y2k, the food supply, and key support programs, has some basic info, plus excellent food security links.
