The local food movement is about to become crippled by a bill that is before Congress.
The U.S. Senate is likely to vote on the food safety bill when it reconvenes after the election.
Local farmers and farmers’ market vendors stand to experience a paperwork blizzard, as the way the bill is written, their businesses and facilities will be needlessly included under a proposed industrial regulatory standard. This is a very real threat to our local food producers, and could actually put many of them out of business. We can’t let this happen.
