Tell Congress: Subsidize Healthy Foods, Not Junk Foods!

Area: 
vegetables, berries and nuts on a table

Have you ever wondered why genetically modified, pesticide-drenched, over-fertilized, hyper-processed foods are cheaper than organic foods grown without these expensive inputs?

Organic produce and pasture-raised animal products get no direct support.

According to a study published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Farm Bill crop subsidies contribute significantly to obesity and diet-related disease.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Congress to fix the U.S. obesity and diet-related disease problem by shifting federal farm subsidies from junk food crops to organic produce.Read more
