FOOD SAFETY ACTION ALERT - National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition
Fortunately, Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) has introduced the Growing Safe Food Act (S. 2758) to create a national food safety training and technical assistance program. It would deliver training and technical assistance appropriate to small and mid scale farms to reduce the incidence of food borne illness.
CALL YOUR SENATOR:
Step 1: Call the capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask to be connected to your Senator’s office. Once connected ask to speak to the aide responsible for agriculture. If the aide is unavailable leave a brief voice mail message about the Growing Safe Food Act. Be sure to leave your name and a call back number.
Step 2: Urge your Senator to co-sponsor the Growing Safe Food Act (S 2758). Tell them that providing training and technical assistance to farmers engaged in on farm processing is essential to good economic development and safe, local and healthy food.
