Virtual Food & Farm Lobby Day 2020

April 2, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

UPDATE: We want to let you know Virtual Food & Farm Lobby Day is postponed for now. When lawmakers are able to return to Springfield, we will bring this incredible community together.

But you can use your voice today, in just minutes from home, click here to send a letter to you representative!


On Thursday, April 2nd, local food advocates, farmers, and citizens from across the state will come together ONLINE!

The statehouse is closed to public gathering and we are practicing social distancing, but still want your voice to be heard at our annual lobby day.

The Virtual Food & Farm Lobby Day will encourage legislators to support family farmers; grow local food businesses; and build healthier, more resilient communities. 

Join us for a virtual training and online resources on how to call and strike up honest conversations legislators about the importance of local food systems to our health, communities, and environment, and virtually advocating for positive policy solutions that support local farms and wholesome food access for all.

Click here for our 2020 Legislative Priorities to familiarize yourself before the event.
