Tell Congress: Reject a Farm Bill that Punishes Struggling Oregonians

The Farm Bill proposal emerging from the U.S. House would punish Oregonians struggling to make ends meet and takes away food assistance from millions of struggling households nationwide. It would end the traditional bipartisan nature of the Farm Bill. Instead of taking away grocery money from low-income parents and seniors to pay for new risky schemes, we urge Congress to focus on policies that help create jobs, boost wages, and reduce hunger.

We support and advocate for public policy that will increase economic stability, strengthen our food system and increase access to the food assistance safety net on the local, state and federal levels.
