National Food Policy Scorecard

The National Food Policy Scorecard is your go-to source for information about the most important food legislation considered by the House and Senate and how all members of Congress voted on those issues. The Scorecard reflects the consensus of top food policy experts who select the key food policy votes each year. 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. The National Food Policy Scorecard lets you identify which legislators are working for sensible food policies.

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.
