First of all, where's ours?! (Daily RFT knows that St. Louis has spots -- such as the Northside -- that qualify as food deserts).
Secondly, some of you will hate on all this by saying that $100 large is a drop in the silo for Monsanto. It is. And no question it's a good PR move. But we're willing to bet the low-income Chicagoans got more out of a handful of urban truck patches than Monsanto ever did, relatively speaking.
