First Look at the House Farm Bill
April 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PDT
Co-Sponsored by the Farm to Fork Initiative and Sustainable Agriculture & Food Systems Funders
Earlier today, the leadership of the House Agriculture Committee released its version of the Farm Bill, kicking off the process to renew the legislation that authorizes many critical food and farm programs. We are currently collecting initial analysis from a wide range of food policy experts on what the bill would mean for programs that reduce hunger, promote health and nutrition, protect food and farm workers, make food safer, and support conservation. You can find that analysis at www.betterfarmbill.org.
The Farm to Fork Initiative and SAFSF are co-hosting a funder-only webinar this Monday, April 16th at 1:00pm ET / 10:00am PT to provide food system funders with cross-sector analysis of the draft bill’s potential impact on programs that advance a Good Food system in America. A group of expert advocates will discuss the bill’s implications for food and farms, as well as the advocacy activities planned around the Farm Bill.
We hope you are able to join us.
