Why Food Policy Matters

There are few issues more important than the food we eat. Advocating for good food policies and electing food policy leaders are the best ways to get to the heart of many issues facing our food system today, including hunger, food safety and sustainable farming.

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.
