Federal Food & Farm Policy: Farm Bill 101 with NSAC (April 2017)

CAN members, practitioner partners, and Appalachia Funders Network members of the Food &Ag Systems Working Group (FASWG) were joined by policy experts from the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC). NSAC staff shared an overview of the Farm Bill process,identified critical USDA programs that are funded through the bill, and laid out opportunities to get involved in advocating for a 2018 Farm Bill that supports local food systems, food access, rural businesses, and farmland conservation. This is a great starting point for anyone curious about the Farm Bill and federal Ag policy. To download a pdf of the slides from the webinar presentation, click here.
