[Live Event] How the Farm Bill will affect the food you eat and the air you breathe.

Do you eat? Silly question, right? We all depend on what is grown within our local, regional, and national food systems as well as the natural resources—soil, air, and water—that are so vital to food and farming. That’s why the 2018 Farm Bill affects all of us. Join us Monday, February 26 at 1pm EST for a live discussion on how this massive piece of legislation will impact national nutrition and hunger programs, the environment, local economies, and public health.

In this one-hour event with Jennifer Wilkins, an expert on how agriculture impacts public health and the environment, you will:

  • Learn how the 2018 Farm Bill provides opportunities for increasing food security, health, and sustainability
  • Understand how the Farm Bill affects all Americans through its impact on nutrition programs
  • Become familiar with the divergent interests that will come into play as this huge omnibus bill takes shape
