Why the 2013 Farm Bill and Federal Funding Matter to Community Food Systems

Join three policy advocates working on federal policies to learn why the 2013 Farm Bill, the budget, and appropriations are important to your work. Learn about what the current timelines for Farm Bill action appear to be and how you can easily get involved without committing time we know you don’t have. Presenters will discuss the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC)’s commitment to social justice and diversity, and the relevance of NSAC’s agenda for people of color.

Presenters:
Ferd Hoefner, Policy Director, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition
