Navigating the Farm Bill: What’s at Stake for Food Policy Councils – Webinar
Next year is expected to be a big year for national food and farm policy with the reauthorization of the farm bill. This single bill wields a lot of influence over the operation of state agricultural programs and local food policies. While the impact of this national legislation may not be directly or immediately apparent at the local level, food policy councils have a stake in shaping the update of the farm bill. Join the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future Food Policy Networks project for a conversation with authors Parke Wilde and Alan Hunt about what matters most in the bill to community food systems and the mechanisms by which to shape the contents of the farm bill. Parke Wilde is author of the book Food Policy in the United States: An Introduction. Alan Hunt is author of the book Civic Engagement in Food System Governance: A Comparative Perspective on American and English Local Food Movements.
