Support the Farm Bill Recommendations

This year, the federal Farm Bill is up for reauthorization by Congress, and the Vermont Farm Bill Nutrition Coalition has been working together since January to establish priority recommendations for the bill to share with Vermont’s Congressional delegation. The nutrition programs within the Farm Bill, including 3SquaresVT and the Emergency Food Assistance Program, support tens of thousands of people across Vermont.

The final set of priority recommendations were directly informed by a collaborative process with many organizations and individuals across the state.

Visit the Hunger Free Vermont website to view the final recommendations and sign on in support as an individual and/or organization.
