Food and farming might seem like afterthoughts in the Trump administration but this week's silencing of all public-facing USDA scientific research documents suggests otherwise.

Will school lunch reforms and nutrition standards stand?
Will the administration compromise on undocumented farmworkers?
Which food safety and environmental regulations will go, and how fast?
