Food and farm public forum

  • PSU Smith Student Union Ballroom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Our current food and farm system is broken. As Congress takes up re-authorization of the federal Farm Bill in 2018, Congressman Blumenauer is fighting for a more equitable, cost-effective, and environmentally sustainable path forward. Blumenauer is hosting a public forum to discuss the importance of supporting farmers, families, the environment, and all those affected by federal food and farm policies.

The forum will feature special guest Ken Cook, president and co-founder of Environmental Working Group and Chairman of the Board of Food Policy Action.
