A new campaign launched in July by the American Farm Bureau Federation and its partners promotes the importance of the farm bill to all Americans.
AFBF led the creation of “ Farm Bill for America’s Families,” a campaign to highlight the broad reach of the farm bill. More than 20 diverse farm and agriculture, environmental and conservation organizations are included in the effort, including the American Seed Trade Association, the Environmental Defense Fund, Feeding America, the American Sugar Alliance, the National Farmers Union, the Nature Conservancy and the National Pork Producer Council.
Its mission is to protect America’s food security, support future job security, advance environmental sustainability and ensure farmers can continue stocking America’s pantries.
The high-level campaign conveys several messages to Congress, including the need for a 2023 farm bill before the end of the year. Core objectives include food security, job creation, conservation, risk management and addressing hunger.
The campaign’s purpose is to educate and engage a consumer-based audience, including Capitol Hill staffers, about the importance and impact of the farm bill.
