Income Children's Access to Clean and Nutritious Food Cut in Farm Bill:
Urgent Action Needed to Protect Children
Contact your members of Congress (Congressman and U.S. Senators) to let them know that this program should be saved. Urge that continued funding (1/10 of 1% of the Farm bill) for this program that supports farmers, market gardeners and increases the nutritional value of the diets of vulnerable populations. Also, contact the Conferees to the Farm Bill (see list below).
While you are delivering this important message, tell your members of Congress and the conferees that they should support the School Environment Protection Act (SEPA), Section 1042 in the Senate Farm Bill.
Thanks for your action on this. For more information, contact Jay Feldman at Beyond Pesticides, 202-543-5450 or [email protected].
