Did you see our “What’s All the Flapping About?” post on our blog? This June, we need YOUR help standing up to politicians who are working to strip farmers’ rights – like the right to free speech, freedom of association, and the right to know how you will be paid – at the behest of Big Meat behemoths like Tyson. Even worse, they’re doing it in secret through a budget bill – no place for changing the rules on livestock farmers! Here’s the catch – we won’t know how bad things are until we see that budget bill in early June. Can you pledge to take action when the time comes? Just sign up TODAY for our email action alert list (scroll down; be sure to check the GIPSA box) and we’ll keep you in the loop and prepared to take action in June!
Farm to school is a no-brainer – it’s a win-win for kids, farmers, and communities!
That’s why we’re so excited that the bipartisan team of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS), Representative Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE), and Representative Marcia Fudge (D-OH) introduced the Farm to School Act of 2015! The Farm to School Act of 2015, with support from more members of Congress, will become part of the Child Nutrition Act reauthorization package later this year.
What exactly is in the bill? Lots of incredible policy changes for farm to school programs nationwide!
We need help from YOU to make sure the Farm to School Act makes it into the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act this fall!
YOU CAN HELP! Let’s tell everyone in Congress that they should sign on to this bipartisan bill!
If you care about getting healthy food to everyone, protecting our natural resources, and supporting the next generation of American farmers, then you’ll want to get involved this year!
