Tell Congress to Act on Climate for Our Food System
This petition had 30,199 supporters
Rising temperatures. Extreme precipitation. Drought. Flooding. Pathogens, parasites, and weeds.
Our food system is incredibly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. From the farmers that produce the food we eat, to the retailers that aggregate and distribute the food, to the consumers that rely on healthy, safe and affordable food, all of us stand to be affected by the enormous challenges posed to food security by climate change.
We can, however, engage all stakeholders in the food system in the battle to adapt to and help mitigate the effects of climate change, and that is through the upcoming Farm Bill - our nation's largest farm and food policy package.
National Farmers Union is taking a lead on this because our family farmer and rancher members are on the front lines of climate change, and they are already experiencing the incredible volatility of the changing climate.
Please join us as we call on Congress to enhance our climate resiliency and mitigate climate change through the Farm Bill. Take action today and tell Congress to act on climate for the sake of domestic and global food security. Farmers and consumers alike rely on it.
