N.H. News Roundup: Food and the Granite State, a police shootout in Manchester
Everybody eats. It’s nothing new. But what do people in the Granite State eat?
What food is considered N.H. food? Is it local? Imported?
NHPR’s All Things Considered is kicking off a new feature on local food, called Foodstuffs.
One local farmer says the key to a fruitful crop may be to contain it.
But what about the food rules? There are plenty in place, and New England farmers want a say in them.
In schools, there are nutrition guidelines – and Belmont High School didn’t violate them when the principal ordered 20 pizzas for a group of students, despite earlier confusion.
Speaking of students, they want to help out with the food situation in the Granite State, too. Thanks to some Derry fourth-graders, the white potato officially made its debut as the state vegetable today after Gov. Maggie Hassan signed the bill into law.
Also, I know I teased to this yesterday – but come on! Lobster beer!
