Call to CA's Congressional Delegation: Talking Points for the 2018 Farm Bill
The Farm Bill is the nation's most important piece of food and farming legislation and includes our state's largest anti-hunger investment, CalFresh. As Congress drafts the next Farm Bill, it is critical that CalFresh is protected from structural changes, benefit cuts, or eligibility restrictions. CFPA has prepared talking points for use in educating policymakers about the importance of protecting and strengthening CalFresh in the next Farm Bill.
