This is quite simply the worst piece of food legislation I've ever seen.
The House could vote any day now on its version of the 2012 farm bill - the single biggest factor that determines what ends up on your plate - and it's a doozy. This bill would feed fewer people, help fewer farmers, do less to promote healthy diets and weaken environmental protections - all while giving hand-outs to Big Ag!
We can't afford to wait. EWG Action Fund is leading the charge to fight this bill, but we need your help. Ask your member of Congress today to reject this farm bill.
We deserve better than this travesty. Everyone should have access to affordable, healthy food. Tell your member of Congress to reject this bill right away.
This bill is mind-boggling. We need to stand up now. Thank you for adding your voice.
President, EWG Action Fund
