Slow Food NYC has joined more than 100 other food-active organizations, writers, educators, and chefs in declaring why New York City cares about the Food and Farm Bill and signing on to the NYC Food and Farm Bill Principles.
These important documents have been sent to key legislators on the Congressional Deficit Reduction "Super" Committee and the House and Senate Agriculture Committees. The NYC Food and Farm Bill Principles advocate a healthy food system, from farm to eater. Now, the NYC Food and Farm Bill Working Group has invited us to help them get thousands of food-active individuals to weigh in on protecting the food safety net and ending hunger, creating a health-focused food system, protecting our agricultural land and water resources, helping small and medium-scale farms operated by both established and beginning farmers, and building vibrant, regional farm and food economies.
The unprecedented pace of the creation of the next Food and Farm Bill, driven by the "Super" Committee process, makes it important for us all to act now. Your voice counts!
Take a moment to sign on right now:
The NYC Food and Farm Bill Working Group will see to it that your voice, and the voices of many, many others, will be heard in Washington.
