PITTSBORO, N.C. — Do you care about sustainable agriculture and food security? Do you want to learn more about how the Farm Bill impacts those important issues? If so, the North Carolina Food System Advocacy Coalition’s Summer Farm Bill Series is right for you!
Building from our Farm Storm last fall, we are holding three virtual sessions this summer to continue to share information about the Farm Bill and two marker bills: the Fresh Produce Procurement Reform Act and the Agriculture Resiliency Act. All three sessions will be the same but are designed to educate folks in your network as we look towards this fall and winter for more targeted advocacy around the Farm Bill after the elections.
We will be meeting every 4th Thursday this summer at 12:00 pm (calendar with information and Zoom registration links here). Please register ahead of time with the links below:

The Farm Bill is a gigantic piece of federal legislation that is passed by Congress every five years and deals with everything from Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), conservation programs, programs supporting local food systems, and much more.
The next Farm Bill will be in 2023, but the time to begin our advocacy is now!
