Slow Food

There are a few organizations that are really worthwhile in the struggle to have a food system that supports health for people and the environment, Slow Food is one of them.

If you’re concerned about the quality of the food available to the majority of people, the ability to create health, and make the best use of resources, I would encourage you to consider having your voice heard on this issue.  In this letter, “signing the petition” is a hot link to add your name to the list.

The Road to a Fair Food and Farm Bill On October 1, 2012, the 2008 Food and Farm Bill EXPIRED! This is the first time in the history of the Food and Farm Bill that a Congress has allowed this to happen. At risk are programs to conserve our land and water, reforms to subsidies that favor the mega-farms of industrial agriculture, and programs to help beginning and disadvantaged farmers.

Sign the petition to demand Congress pass an equitable, sustainable 2012 Food and Farm Bill, one that is good for us, good for farmers, and good for our planet.

For the sake of our nation’s health, our farmers and ranchers, and our natural resources, we need a better Food and Farm Bill, and we need it this year! Slow Food USA is joining with other concerned organizations to wake Congress up to their responsibility to support a food and farm system that is good for eaters, family farmers and ranchers, and the environment.

You can help by signing the petition and sending it to your friends. It’s easy and won’t take but a few seconds.

All our voices together can make a difference.

Sincerely,

Ed Yowell
Slow Food USA Governor
