Food Fight 2012: Why the Farm Bill Matters to All of Us with Author Dan Imhoff
Join author Daniel Imhoff and special guests for a conversation about the Food and Farm Bill, why it matters to you, and what you can do about it.

According to Michael Pollan, "Nothing could do more to reform America's food system, and by doing so, improve the condition of America's environment and public health, than if citizens were to weigh in on the Farm Bill."

The Farm Bill is one of the least understood and most important pieces of legislation in the United States. It allocates funding for Food Stamps, conservation practices, and farm subsidies. The 2008 Farm Bill is set to expire September 30 of this year, so Congress is at this very minute debating policies that ultimately determine what we will eat for the next five years. Anyone who eats or pays taxes needs to learn what's at stake.

Daniel Imhoff is the author of many books on food, farming, and the environment. His latest book, Food Fight: The Citizen's Guide to the Next Food and Farm Bill, is a comprehensive and comprehensible guide to food and farm policy for the average citizen.

This event is free, but space is limited, so reserve a seat now.  

The event is sponsored by the New York City Food and Farm Bill Working Group, http://foodbillnyc.wikispaces.com/, Greenmarket http://www.grownyc.org/greenmarket, Slow Food NYC, www.slowfoodnyc.org/, and the Brooklyn Food Coalition, www.brooklynfoodcoalition.org
