Mother Earth is under the weather, but don't take her "pulse" just yet. In the common usage "pulse" is a vital sign, however another usage is a vital food. Food shortages, impacted by soaring gas prices and inflation, are affecting people in need and their ability to access staple foods. Food banks are busier than ever before. In this environment pulses such as beans, lentils and peas sustainably fill an important need for affordable nutrition. Tony Roelofs, the Vice President of the Pulse Division of Columbia Grain International explains how thousands of farms in the nation's 'pulse' belt are stepping up to produce supplies for the new Balanced Bushel for programs for expanded Section 32 programs. www.columbiagrain.com
