Farm Bill

The farm bill is the single largest piece of federal legislation for food and farming. It impacts access to nutritious food for the millions of people in the United States facing hunger. As grocery prices rise and supply chain disruptions continue, lawmakers must come together to pass a bipartisan 2023 Farm Bill that supports food banks and the people they serve.

Feeding America is urging Congress to double down on our nation’s commitment to ending hunger by strengthening critical nutrition programs in the 2023 Farm Bill that help seniors, families, children, active military members and others. This should include building on program innovations implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also important that Congress centers the voices of people facing hunger.
