The campaign will focus on four main issues:
- Stopping taxpayer subsidies going to Big Ag polluters;
- Protecting and improving anti-hunger programs like SNAP;
- Increasing federal investments in organic agriculture; and
- Expanding federal programs to revitalize land and reduce food waste.
The new initiative will deploy grassroots and online tools and tactics to raise awareness about farm and food policies, and show why consumers must demand their right to healthy food as Congress begins crafting a new Farm Bill.
