Time for a Big Foodie lobby?

"I can imagine Slow Food over time having a membership and a reach that enables it to put real pressure on federal policymakers in the next food and farm bill discussion in the same way the Natural Resources Defense Council or the Sierra Club could affect policy for the environmental movement."
This, from Gourmet magazine, is a ripe idea, ready for harvest. Isn't it time that Americans started wresting control of food policy from corporations? I could easily see hundreds of thousands of Americans joining to create a lobby for better food policy. Hard to say if Slow Food is the best group--or set of principles--to organize around from a broader policy perspective, but I think we can increasingly agree that America's agriculture policies do not currently best serve the public health or the needs of our myriad food cultures.
