Food Policy Action is releasing the following statement from its co-founder Tom Colicchio regarding the announcement that Sonny Perdue is being selected by President-elect Trump to serve as the next U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary:

“Sonny Perdue’s record on food policy is light on substance and poor on action,” said Tom Colicchio, Food Policy Action co-founder, food advocate and chef. “We need strong leadership to reform our food policy, promote affordable, nutritious and safe food, fight hunger, safeguard our lands and clean water, and protect our farmers and farm workers, not someone who is weak on oversight and in the pocket of Big Ag. We can and must do better than Governor Perdue.”
