Organic Obama White House

According to a recent article, the Obama's are attempting to transition the White House kitchen into using more organically grown foods, including organic wine for events.

The White House food and beverage manager Daniel Shanks had this to say about the switch to organic:

"They talked to us about their vision," he says, referring to the first family and their personal chef, Sam Kass, now at the White House. "They are really excited about being able to show to the world that there's a better way in a positive, healthy manner. We need to eat better. We need to take care of the land," says Shanks. He calls theirs a natural progression for the White House kitchen.
