The Farm Bill is the most important food policy in the nation.

Touching everything from farming to food prices, environmental protections and anti-hunger programs, the Farm Bill impacts the lives of Angelenos in many ways.

Did you know that more than 70% of the Farm Bill is actually made up of SNAP, formerly known as the “food stamps” program, which helps more than one million Angelenos put food on the table? The Farm Bill is up for renewal by Congress this year, but many programs that support local agriculture and food security for Angelenos may be in jeopardy.

Join us on May 31st for a Party with a Purpose for #ABetterFarmBill at Greenbar Distillery in the Arts District of Downtown LA as part of the LA Times Food Bowl. Come learn how the Farm Bill shapes food in Los Angeles and how Angelenos can take action for good food for all. Enjoy specially crafted farm-to-table cocktails by Greenbar Distillery, local eats by Chef Minh Phan and X’Tiousu, and connect with food advocates, all while raising funds for Hunger Action LA—a grassroots organization that works to end hunger and promote healthy eating.

Ticket prices vary. Please note that proceeds from tickets purchased benefit Hunger Action LA and their work to protect programs that address food insecurity including SNAP.

Don't wait. Make your voice heard on the #FarmBill2018!

Angelenos can be proactive in shaping #ABetterFarmBill. Here are just four ways:

1. Stand behind SNAP/CalFresh.

May is Calfresh Awareness Month, a reminder that individuals can apply to Calfresh via the Los Angeles County Department of Social Services (DPSS) website. If you prefer to apply in person, you can visit your local CalFresh District Office. There are several locations throughout Los Angeles County.

2. Voice your concerns about the Farm Bill.

Contact your Representative and Senators. You can find your Representative here. California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA) developed fact sheets for each California Representative, which provides relevant information for each district. On the Senate side, you can contact California senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris. You can also contact the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and they will connect you to your Senate or House representative.

3. Join the coalition.

The Farm to Fork Initiative is assembling a comprehensive list of national, regional and local organizations, businesses and leaders opposed to the House Farm Bill. Organizations can fill out this form, which will add your organization name to a public list of those who oppose cuts to the Farm Bill.

4. Spread the word.

Check out and share this video by Hunger Action LA featuring HALA coalition members. Learn the facts about the Farm Bill, what is at stake for our communities, and help spread the word on why the Farm Bill matters.
