Grow Organics petition from the EWG

Congress will soon vote on a new farm bill – the federal measure with the greatest impact on the food we eat. Currently, your tax dollars go to highly profitable agribusinesses that don’t need the help and to people who don’t live anywhere near a farm. The government does very little to help farmers grow organic fruits and vegetables. We want to change all that!

Tell Congress that you want your tax dollars to go to programs that help families gain greater access to healthy, affordable food.

Join forces with the Environmental Working Group (EWG) and sign EWG’s Grow Organics petition today to let Congress know where we want our tax dollars spent!
