Almost three-quarters of the billions of dollars in federal Farm Bill funding each year goes toward food and nutrition programs like school meals and hunger assistance. The significant impact of Farm Bill funding will be felt, not only in our state’s rural areas, but also by most Minnesotans living the urban and suburban areas.
As the U.S. Senate begins debate the 2012 Farm Bill, key members of Senator Al Franken's staff will hold a Farm Bill Nutrition Listening Tour across the Twin Cities to update those concerned about nutrition programs, public health, school nutrition and hunger programs on the status of the Farm Bill and to hear their concerns.
Senator Franken will use the input he receives from these meetings during the upcoming Senate debate to ensure Minnesota’s interests are reflected in the bill. The meetings will be led by Senator Franken’s Minnesota Agriculture Advisor, Al Juhnke. They are free and open to the public but your RSVP is requested at email@example.com or 651-221-1016.
