Vermont Anti-Hunger Organizations Celebrate the Strong Bipartisan Farm Bill Agreement:

Congress passed a bipartisan Farm Bill maintaining and protecting the federal nutrition programs and supporting our farmers and agricultural economy. The bill that passed is a testament to nearly two years of strong advocacy by anti-hunger and farmer organizations, and the resolute support of many members of Congress like Vermont’s Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders, and Congressman Welch.
