I know the Farm Bill is important, but how can I ever understand a 1,000+ page complex, omnibus piece of legislation?
Food Fight: The Citizen’s Guide to the Next Food and Farm Bill, by Daniel Imhoff with a forward by Michael Pollan is your essential guide. Over the past three days, The Atlantic ran a three-part Farm Bill 101 series based on this guide. It is critical reading for anyone who eats:
- Overhauling the Farm Bill: Political Wedge Issues Slowing Reform
- Overhauling the Farm Bill: The Real Beneficiaries of Subsidies
- Overhauling the Farm Bill: Planting for the Future with Perennials
This is the latest in a series of regular updates on the development of the next Farm Bill which will be provided by Judith Belasco, Director of Programs at Hazon. If you are interested in writing about your work on the Farm Bill, please be in touch.
