“This is a big win for food advocates and Florida families. Congressman Southerland has repeatedly made policy choices that are harmful to families and small farmers. Today, we proved that voters care about food issues, and they will hold their elected officials accountable on Election Day,” said Tom Colicchio, co-founder and board member of FPA.

“Food Policy Action stands for the principle that the American people want and deserve to know how elected officials in Washington are voting on issues that affect the food we eat,” said Ken Cook, Chairman of FPA. “This year, for the first time, we communicated with voters whose Members have been voting the wrong way, and the response to our message has been incredibly positive.”
