Global production of chocolate has a dark side, involving child labour, slavery and unfair business practices, but there are plenty of ethically-sourced Easter treats to choose from this year.

This makes me proud to call Washington, DC my new home. This move by Mayor Muriel E. Bowser is progressive, bold and much needed in urban cities all over the United States.

Hats off to chef Spike Mendelsohn, for being the first chairperson of this task-force charged with coordinating citywide efforts to address food access and growing the local food economy in DC.

This is something I can get behind, a city dealing with food deserts, and local food growth and sustainability. I would encourage ALL chefs, community activists, urban gardeners and environmentalists to encourage their city governments to create such task-forces and programmes.
