  • Food industry under scrutiny at Berlin Film Festival as two anti-agribusiness docs share the spotlight:  "Food, Inc." and "Terra Madre" (Mother Earth). Reuters
  • Even pets are feeling the pinch. Animal food bank opens in Lawrenceville, Ga. Detroit Free Press
  • Starbucks, the chain that normalized the $3 cup of coffee, will start offering discount breakfasts: $3.95 for coffee and food. Triangle Business Journal
  • Can we turn beer waste into fish food? Yes, we can! 9News.com
  • British celeb chef Antony Worrall Thompson closes four restaurants; he's using his own savings to keep the other two running. Guardian
