Support a #farmbill4all

Farm Bill negotiations are heating up in Washington. Help us send a strong message to our members of Congress that we oppose efforts to cut critical nutrition programs, including Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Let them know that Minnesotans demand a #farmbill4all!

Too many Minnesotans continue to struggle to meet their basic needs. The Nutrition Title of the Farm Bill provides access to food to hundreds of thousands of low- and middle-income Minnesotans. Specifically, investments in SNAP have increased the number of Minnesota children and seniors able to access food, prevented financial ruin for families faced with the challenges of job loss or unexpected health care costs, and provided much needed economic activity for Main Street grocery retailers in every corner of the state.

While the Farm Bill is a vital safety net for many Minnesotans in need of food support, it also provides crucial resources to small, new and emerging farmers as well as community-based organizations creating strong and sustainable food systems that meet the needs of rural and urban communities. These resources must also be protected for the sake of our food system in Minnesota.

In January, dozens of organizations signed on to a letter urging our Congressional Delegation to support a strong nutrition title in the Farm Bill. View the Farm Bill sign on letter
