Farm Bill Policy Series
The Farm Bill is a comprehensive piece of federal legislation that is slated for congressional discussion and approval in 2018. The Wagner Food Policy Alliance (WFPA) and the Food Studies Graduate Society (FSGS) is hosting a series of three events covering topics related to the upcoming Farm Bill, including SNAP, farm subsidies, agricultural economics, and firsthand experiences with Farm Bill programs. These events will be hosted in November, December, and February.
A panel of experts from the academic, government, non-profit, and advocacy sectors will speak about the Farm Bill and provide context for this upcoming legislative battle. Through multiple perspectives, we will host a comprehensive conversation about the challenges and possible outcomes of this complicated 2018 legislation.
