Soon Congress will vote on how to spread our tax dollars including farming. Right now we have a chance to let Congress know that we would like tax dollars focused on healthy and affordable food as part of the new farm bill.
I don’t know about you but there are days I have total sticker shock in the produce section of the grocery store. We are trying to eat healthier and focus on having a variety of fruits and veggies in our diet. As we add more and more veggies and fruit to our diet and take out processed food our grocery bill is rising significantly. I know that in the long run the choices we make are for the best but dang that doesn’t help the checkbook balance.
You can learn more about produce and how to best maximize your produce in our Produce 101 posts. We share how to store different varieties of produce and tips for picking out the best produce.
By signing this petition, you are telling Congress that you want your tax dollars to go to programs that help families gain greater access to healthy, affordable food in the new farm bill. This petition will be sent to Frank D. Lucas, Chairmain of the House Committee on Agriculture and Debbie Stabenew, Chairwoman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.
