June 18, 2012
On Friday, Congressman Earl Blumenauer joined more than 250 citizens, food professionals, agency employees and social justice advocates at Multnomah County’s 3rd Annual Food Summit. The Congressman encouraged attendees to become vocal champions of reforms to the federal Farm Bill, citing his own recommendations laid out in the “Growing Opportunities” report.
“Every Oregonian has a stake in this important legislation: farmers, ranchers, and people who eat,” the Congressman said. “We ought to make sure this bill helps feed Oregonians through our Farmers’ Markets, the SNAP program, and our successful Farm to School programs.”
