Policy: Interested in Understanding and Influencing the Farm Bill?

Does mention of the Farm Bill make you feel both excited and overwhelmed at the same time?

Maybe on one hand you may know how important Farm Bill reform is for NY communities and farmers, but on the other hand it just seems to daunting to sort through all the politics and coalitions, much less try to have an impact yourself. If that sounds familiar, then come to Just Food for an informal discussion about what's at stake in the Farm Bill, what its status is right now in Congress and what to expect in the coming months. We'll also talk about ways you can have an impact as in individual, how you can share information with your community and how you can join the Just Food Farm Bill Outreach Team.

Contact the Food Justice coordinator of Just Food, Molly, for more information on dates and times: molly@justfood.org

Note: I hope to attend this and would love to work with other CSA members who are interestsed in food and farm policy issues. Send an e-mail with Policy in the subject line to me at kwtcsa@gmail.com if you are interested in policy issues. --Susan
