This Friday May 4th, join author Daniel Imhoff and special guests for a conversation about the Food and Farm Bill, why it matters to you, and what you can do about it.
So what is the Food and Farm Bill? The Farm Bill allocates funding for Food Stamps, conservation practices, and farm subsidies. The 2008 Farm Bill is set to expire September 30 of this year, so Congress is currently debating policies that ultimately determine what Americans will eat for the next five years.
According to Michael Pollan, “Nothing could do more to reform America’s food system, and by doing so, improve the condition of America’s environment and public health, than if citizens were to weigh in on the Farm Bill.”
Daniel Imhoff is the author of many books on food, farming, and the environment. His latest book, Food Fight: The Citizen’s Guide to the Next Food and Farm Bill, is a comprehensive and comprehensible guide to food and farm policy for the average citizen.
