Fair Farm Bill Campaign Kick Off Tonight at the Library
Food & Water Watch, an organization that the website says works to ensure the food, water and fish we consume is safe, accessible and sustainably produced, is holding a Fair Farm Bill campaign kick off at the Ferndale Public Library tonight at 7 p.m.
"Our country’s food system is broken. A few large companies, like Cargill and Monsanto, control every part of our food system, squeezing consumers and driving out small and mid-sized farmers," a release from Food & Water Watch stated.
The meeting will kick of the campaign to make sure the USDA implements the 2008 Fair Farm Rules, which, according to Food & Water Watch, level the playing field for small and mid-sized farmers that give consumers access to safer, more sustainable food.
Head up to the library to learn about the Fair Farm Bill campaign and how you can help.
