The scored food policy issues include domestic and international hunger, food safety, food access, farm subsidies, animal welfare, food and farm labor, nutrition, food additives, food transparency, local and regional food production, organic farming and the effects of food production on the environment.

Fairness in the Food System

In 2015-2016, Congress has neglected to take up important issues regarding the fairness of our food system. The food system includes not just consumers, but food chain workers, farm workers, and their families. At a time when five of the eight worst-paying jobs in our country are in the food industry, issues of wage and workplace protections have an important role in making the food system fairer and healthier.
