Congress is currently working on the 2018 farm bill, which is the primary legislation that authorizes many of our nation’s food and nutrition programs. The farm bill includes nutrition assistance programs that help people access nutritious food; nutrition education programs that empower people to make lasting, healthy choices; and nutrition research that addresses the nutrition-related health concerns we face as a nation.

Let your members of Congress know where you stand and urge them to support the important nutrition programs in the farm bill that contribute to the health of all, especially those most susceptible to experiencing insecurity.
