Press Release – Fair Farm Bill Kickoff in Kalamazoo

September 16, 2011

From a press release….

Care about small farmers? How about healthy, sustainable food? Then
please join us for…

Fair Farm Bill Campaign Kickoff Meeting!
Tuesday, September 20th
7:00 – 8:00pm
Kalamazoo Downtown Library, 315 Rose St.
The Van Deusen Room
**Refreshments provided**

Right now, our country’s food system is broken. A few large companies,
like Cargill, control every part of our food system, squeezing consumers
and driving out small and mid-sized farmers.

We all have the right to safe, healthy food. This year, we have a
chance to make sure the USDA implements the 2008 Fair Farm Rules, which
level the playing field for small and mid-sized farmers, giving
consumers access to safer, more sustainable food.

Right now, Senator Stabenow is on the fence on this issue. We need your
help to make sure she stands up for small farmers, consumers and the
environment.

Come to the Fair Farm Bill Campaign Kickoff Meeting to learn how you
can help! All are welcome so please bring your friends.

Tuesday, September 20th
7:00 – 8:00pm
Kalamazoo Downtown Library, 315 Rose St.
The Van Deusen Room

To learn more about how you can get involved before the meeting, please
contact Charlotte Bartter at cbartter@fwwlocal.org or 269-290-1448.
Thanks, and looking forward to seeing you on the 20th!
