Federal Food and Farm Policy

Slow Food believes that public policy, at all levels—federal, state, and local—greatly influences what food is produced, how it is produced, and who has access to it. Policy impacts every aspect of the food chain, from the environment to farms, ranches, and fisheries; farm workers, ranch hands, fishers, and food chain workers; and, of course, eaters. Join us in an engaging conversation on food policy, led by Slow Food​ board member and Detroit city planner Kathryn Underwood. The workshop will feature a panel of representatives to speak on the Farm Bill, SNAP, Child Nutrition, and fisheries. The panel will discuss relevant issues in public policy and after, the strategies we can engage in to positively impact our food system.
