In this busy news cycle, you might hear about issues around the 2018 Farm Bill. Take a few minutes to learn more about what's going on with the bill and how other organizations have reacted:

Mid-Ohio Foodbank Human Service Chamber of Franklin County No Kid Hungry

From farm to fork, America’s food system should make the safest and healthiest food available to everyone, and the #FarmBill introduced in the House falls far short. We are telling Congress to deliver a bill we can be proud of. #GoodFoodPolicy

What I love so dearly about Local Matters is that they are very passionate about addressing health-related issues while teaching the skills needed to feed a family on a budget. Now think about it for... a moment. This great organization will serve 11,000 individuals, children and families here in Central Ohio this year. Food impacts the quality of our health, our land and our communities and Local Matters is committed to addressing the issues by making healthy food accessible so that all people may have access to healthful foods. They educate people on healthful food, where it comes from, how to grow it and how to cook it. They engage others including policy makers to develop leadership and build support for a sustainable food system.

Trust me when I say Local Matters is committed and Local Matters cares about people's health by helping to provide healthy food.
