Food Insecurity, Faith, and the Farm Bill?
July 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Fort Wayne at Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren
Wednesday, July 25 at noon.
Join us for Food Insecurity, Faith, and the Farm Bill? We’ll have a light lunch & discuss food insecurity, faith and the 2018 Farm Bill. We’ll meet Wednesday, July 25th, 2018 at the Beacon Heights Church of the Brethren at noon. We will take a look at the recent versions of the 2018 farm bill, discuss local and sustainable farming, and SNAP benefits as a safeguard against food insecurity, and how those go hand-in-hand to make good policy that supports our food systems and what the science and faith communities are doing in Ft Wayne.
Here are two articles you might wish to check out before our gathering on some of UCS’s current stances on the Farm Bill:
