Food Policy Action is disappointed that the Farm Bill conference report makes it harder for poor families to put food on the table while increasing subsidies for the most profitable farm businesses in the country.

January 28, 2014, Washington, DC — Food Policy Action is disappointed that the Farm Bill conference report makes it harder for poor families to put food on the table while increasing subsidies for the most profitable farm businesses in the country.

While the Farm Bill conference agreement does renew funding for local food systems, organic agriculture and makes forward progress in programs like International Food Aid and conservation compliance, it falls short of creating a food bill that reforms our agriculture system in any meaningful way.

Food Policy Action may score final passage of the farm bill conference report in the 2014 National Food Policy Scorecard.
