Simplicity has a clarifying quality to it, but it’s also frothed with dangerous fix-it bumper sticker platitudes which make solving a huge multi-faceted problem like hunger seem simple. Ask yourself ‘why are people hungry in one of the richest countries in the world?’
Tune in to hear from a continuing contributor on Food for Thought, Carrie Calvert, Managing Director of Government Relations at Feeding America. Carrie, Gerry and Phil discuss the Farm Bill and its vital interest in FBCM’s work and our mission to created food security across the state.
The Farm Bill covers food production policy, land conversation and nutrition programs. It also uniquely connects the people who are producing the food to the people who are in need of food.
It’s as simple as this – if you like access to safe and nutritious food, then you should care / learn more about the Farm Bill!.
