Congress passed a $2 trillion coronavirus relief package last week. Thanks to the hard work from our friends at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, local food producers and businesses are included in the $9.5 billion emergency funding aid package.
Local food producers among those at the front lines of the crisis, getting hit with an unprecedented increase in demand and others experiencing huge losses. They need help quickly.
Now is the time to make sure that farmers, ranchers, and innovative food and farm businesses building resilient local and regional food systems get the support they need to continue feeding our communities, paying their employees, and responding rapidly to emergency.
You can help. Join us in urging your member of Congress to make sure the US Department of Agriculture gets relief to farmers quickly who have lost direct markets.
