Care about small farmers? How about healthy, sustainable food? Then please join us for…

 

Fair Farms Campaign Kickoff Meeting!

Thursday, September 22nd

7:00 – 8:00pm

HACC Midtown 2 – Room 118 – 1500 N 3rd St, Harrisburg

**Refreshments provided**

Right now, our country’s food system is broken. A few large companies, like Cargill and Monsanto, control every part of our food system, squeezing consumers and driving out small and mid-sized farmers.

 

We all have the right to safe, healthy food. This year, we have a chance to make sure the USDA implements the 2008 Fair Farm Rules, which level the playing field for small and mid-sized farmers, giving consumers access to safer, more sustainable food.

 

Right now, Senator Casey is on the fence on this issue. We need your help to make sure he stands up to big agribusiness— and stands up for small farmers, consumers and the environment.

 

Come to the Fair Farms Campaign Kickoff Meeting to learn how you can help! All are welcome – bring friends.

 

Thursday, September 22nd
