Turn the Farm Bill into a Food Bill!
EWG's work shows that under the federal farm bill, our government doles out huge subsidies to big farms that don't need the help and to a lot of folks who don't live anywhere near a farm. Some of this money would be better spent supporting working farm families, sustainable farming, protecting the environment and providing healthy, unprocessed food to low-income families and children who depend on government nutrition programs.
In short, the farm bill needs to become a food bill. We are calling on all "eaters" to stand with us and tell Congress that your tax dollars go to programs that feed people, not those that fool people.

As someone who cares about food and how it is grown and supports the EWG Action Fund, I want Congress to turn the next farm bill into a food bill! Instead of giving billions of dollars in subsidies to those who don't need them -- corporate mega-farms or crop insurance companies -- put my money to better use.
I want my tax money to support working farm families, protect land and water and help feed low-income children. Congress needs to reform farm bill spending to make this happen.
Please take the first step right now and invest in smarter food and farm policies that promote a cleaner environment and healthier diets for American kids and families.
