The Plate of the Union: A Call for Action on Food and Farms

Resource: The Plate of the Union: A Call for Action on Food and Farms

 This initiative calls for presidential leadership to ensure healthy, affordable, sustainable, food for all. In this initiative, the current food system in the U.S. is described as broken through overuse and mismanagement of chemicals and practices that damage the air, water and land. The Plate of the Union initiative aims to overhaul this outdated system and replace it with a coherent plan, with the goal of making sure every American has access to healthy, affordable food that is fair to food workers, good for the environment and ensures that farmers can keep farming.
