This week, Senator Brown (D-OH) re-introduced the Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act (LFFJA) for inclusion in the Farm Bill this year. This bill promotes growth in local and regional food systems by expanding market access for farmers and ranchers and providing research and training in areas that support farm entrepreneur success.
Representative Chellie Pingree (D-ME) re-introduced the bill in the House. Representatives Marcy Kaptur and Marcia Fudge from Ohio have co-sponsored the bill. Enter your zip code below to find out if you also live in their district to send a thank you note to them as well.
