Democratic National Convention Stumbles into Parody of Food Sustainability

The National Restaurant Association has taken note of the green guidelines put out for food service for the Democratic National Convention in Denver this summer. They are so restrictive that it is not clear food companies can even bid, for example, asking that wait staff not drive to the events; nothing fried, and 70% of each meal locally sourced.

I don't think these guidelines will actually impact the amount of shrimp eaten in Denver this year -- but someone has clearly lost their way and stumbled into a parody of food sustainability.
