Some of you…perhaps most of you…are not only foodies, but healthy food foodies, and you try to supply your family with nutritious, safe food. A few of you have more than a passing interest in keeping your pantry healthy and go out of your way to feed your family right.

Prove JuicyMaters visitors are the good people I think you are

FTCLDF:  An interview with Pete Kennedy

Today we are going to be taking with Pete Kennedy. Pete’s the president of the FTCLDF (Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund), an organization I’ve been involved with to one extent or another since it’s inception on July 4, 2007.

And I’ve known Pete, who is also one of the lawyers for the fund, since about a year later, when he helped me with a little problem I was having with the Georgia Department of Agriculture. He’s an all around good guy…even if he IS a lawyer…LOL.
