If you vote in the California 20th district and want federal farm policy to prioritize plant-based foods for humans rather than industrial commodity crops for livestock, then please sign your name to our letter that asks Representative Panetta to introduce legislation that will help farmers transition.
Reasons for FARMS legislation:
- Sustainability for climate action: Adopting plant-rich diets is a leading solution to draw down carbon in our atmosphere.
- Public health.Americans eat only half the dietary fiber they need. AFA is calling on federal farm policymakers to prioritize fiber-rich foods in farm programs.
- Food security. Not all Americans have access to nutritious, fiber-rich plant foods. FARMS will empower local producers to address these needs while making the overall food system more resilient in the face of global supply disruptions.
