AZ alumni James Patterson, (Auburn) a former US agricultural diplomat, recently visited Gelman Library at George Washington University for a research project. He noticed a student activity outside the library. Students were raising money "for those who feed us." Patterson thought students were raising funs for small family farmers or maybe farm workers idled by California drought. Instead upon closer examination, Patterson noted students were raising money for DC restaurant workers. "They serve us," Patterson told the students, "farmers feed us." Patterson reports it is unclear if students plan another activity to raise money for small farmers.
