The Food Policy Action advocacy group, a coalition of environmental, anti-hunger, and food policy organizations, came out with a scorecard today grading all members of Congress on their key food policy votes, and just one Georgia lawmaker, Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga), received a perfect score.

The scorecard rates legislators each year based on votes dealing with food labeling, food safety, increased transparency, reduced risk of food-borne illness, farm subsidies, programs that encourage consumption of healthy and locally grown foods, and environmental concerns, among others.
