Federal Budgets are in the Air: Briefing on Impact of 2019 Trump Budget on Food & Agriculture

February 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm PST

Co-sponsored by the Farm to Fork Initiative and Sustainable Agriculture and Food Systems Funders.

On Monday, the White House will release its 2019 budget proposal, which is expected to include steep cuts to programs that you value. Funders and advocates are already preparing for the impact it could have on programs that support healthy choices, reduce hunger and make food more accessible and affordable, protect food and farm workers, make food safer, support local and regional food systems, and reduce the environmental impact of farming and food production.

The Farm to Fork Initiative and Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders are co-hosting this webinar on Wednesday, February 14th at 11:00am PT / 1:00pm CT /2:00pm ET to provide funders and advocates with a rapid response analysis of the budget’s implications for our food system.

We have assembled a team of federal policy and budget experts to provide their independent analysis. We will also share what advocacy activities around the budget are expected and the types of effective messages we can use to elevate Good Food priorities as the federal budget takes shape.

We hope you are able to join us.
