Romney Tackles Global Food Production; Obama's Bear Hug Angers Yelpers

The latest food-related campaign news

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced yesterday that he will participate in the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative, taking place in New York City Sept. 28. Romney will serve on a panel focusing on ways to reform the global food production system.

President Obama will also attend and participate in the initiative. However, the focus of his panel will be on the ways financial institutions can help those in need around the world.

Meanwhile, Big Apple Pizzeria in Fort Pierce, Fla., continues to make headlines today following the highly publicized photo of owner Scott Van Duzer bear-hugging President Obama this weekend. The restaurant’s Yelp page is being flooded with comments from Obama anti-supporters calling for a boycott of Big Apple. But to counter the influx of negative reviews, a number of Yelp-ers have also posted positive ones.
