Fair Food Network is a national nonprofit that works at the intersection of food systems, sustainability and social equity to guarantee access to healthy, fresh and sustainably grown food, especially in underserved communities.
Last week, the Senate and House Agriculture Committees both passed a Farm Bill, and on Monday, May 20, debate on the Senate Ag Committee bill (S. 954 The Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act) began in the full Senate. The full House is expected to take up its Ag Committee’s bill (H.R. 1947 The Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act) sometime in June.
