Join the Senate Floor Fight for a Healthy Food and Farm Bill
Every 5 years, Congress passes a Food and Farm bill that dictates food and agriculture policy for decades to come. This is the single most important piece of legislation that determines what Americans, and many people around the world, eat on a daily basis. Today, there’s a floor fight in the U.S. Senate to decide who benefits this time around: You or corporate lobbyists?
While the bill does contain important reforms getting rid of wasteful direct subsidy payments, a number of vital reforms remain a serious risk of not passing. Right now, Food Democracy Now! needs your help to make sure that the 2012 Food and Farm Bill puts healthy food, family farmers and the environment first!
We have three urgent amendments that need to pass in order to put healthy food on every plate in America and protect vital conservation and nutrition programs. Please fill out the information below to make a call to your Senators and add your name to the list of reformers standing up for a healthy Food and Farm Bill!
