How is the Portland food scene weathering the COVID19 pandemic, racial justice protests, the climate crisis, and workers calling out sexism and oppressive behavior? Alex Frane from Eater PDX joins the Food Show to discuss what’s been happening in the world of restaurants and food carts. 

In the second half of the show we’ll learn about how factory farm biogas also called “renewable natural gas” is damaging our environment, health, and propping up unsustainable industrial agriculture. Tarah Heinzen the legal director at Food & Water watch explains what biogas is, how this lucrative greenwashing is spurring expansions of factory farms, and the current legal and policy challenges.
