Stand up for healthy food & farms
California needs a Farm Bill that bolsters our health, agricultural industry, economy, and environment, while keeping equity and sustainability at the forefront.
We should be leading the nation in supporting small and mid-sized farms, protecting the environment, promoting food safety, ensuring healthy rural economies and improving the nation’s and our state’s health by investing in programs that support more diversified farming and livestock systems, healthy food access, conservation and research.
PAN has joined forces with partners from across the country to help thousands of Californians make their voices heard to our elected officials on critical food and agriculture issues.
Congress is about to make key decisions about food and farm policy. Tell Governor Brown and California’s Congressional delegation to stand up for healthy food and healthy farms today!
I urge you to:
Support full funding for programs that increase economic opportunities for small and mid-sized farms and ranches and increase consumers’ access to local, healthful and sustainable/organic food.
Protect and strengthen USDA nutrition assistance programs that fight hunger and improve nutrition.
Increase access to and affordability of healthy foods and beverages in underserved communities and promote healthier diets for all Americans, especially children.
Maintain full funding for agriculture conservation, research and extension programs.
