Action Alert: Tell Congress to Support Local Food in the 2012 Farm Bill

Action Alert on the Farm Bill 2012, via the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA):

Next week, the Senate Agriculture Committee will start writing its version of the 2012 Farm Bill. Currently, Congress is providing only minimal support for healthy, local, and organic foods while expanding wasteful subsidies and giveaways that support the wealthiest agribusinesses. It’s incredibly important that Congress get this right. Speak out today to support food and farm policies that protect our environment and expand access to healthy food. Sign the Environmental Working Groups petition >
