A Farmers Reflection
Next year, Bread for the World's legislative campaign will combine both our domestic and international hunger work. We will work on the Farm Bill which needs to be reauthorized next year. The Farm Bill is massive in what it includes (much larger than just agriculture issues) and we'll be working to make the bill more just for farmers both in the US and around the world, improve rural development, and meet the needs of hungry people through the nutrition programs. More details about our campaign will come in the next few months.
In the mean time, we can start preparing for this campaign by learning more about the issues around the Farm Bill beginning with agriculture and farming here in the U.S. The New York Times published a good article today that I would encourage you to read about a Kansas farmer reflecting on life as a farmer.
