An opportunity to further shape our foodsystem:
It’s time to give thanks for healthy, local food…
and then take action to protect it!
Time is ticking. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will be finalizing new food safety rules<http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=cT73%2BldRvXmvmYVp57dvRT93T3rD24NY> very soon.
[https://salsa3.salsalabs.com/o/50235/images/Untitled-4.gif]These new rules will impact farmers and local food systems for years to come, and important changes are needed to make sure they don’t put family farmers out of business or stifle local food access. You can help shape your food choices and protect the farms you love by submitting an online comment<http://salsa3.salsalabs.com/dia/track.jsp?v=2&c=njdp3q9EZ7z7vN%2FZdQZCrz93T3rD24NY> to the FDA by December 15!
If you care about sustainable food and farms tell the FDA, “Let a farm be a farm!”
• Farms innovate. Don’t let the rules squash farmers’ innovative efforts in growing and selling local food.
• Farms work with nature. Don’t let the rules prevent growers from using sustainable farming practices.
• Farms deserve fair treatment. Don’t let the rules raise costs for family farmers, food businesses, and consumers by imposing unclear, inconsistent, and unfair rules.
If you are confused by all of the new proposed rules, you are not alone! Join OEFFA, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, the Illinois Stewardship Alliance, and the University of Illinois Extension for a webinar on Monday, December 1 at 2 p.m. to learn about what the new proposal means for farmers and local food.
