Sign the Petition! Tell Congress to Promote Organic Farming!

Print Friendly and PDF

Are you concerned, about what's in your food or what nasty toxic chemicals are on your produce?  I sure am!  When I was younger I ate anything, even if it was unhealthy.  I developed a severe food allergy, that gave me a very severe itch all over my body and I'm sure it's because of all the harmful chemicals in the foods I ate.  I had to take three to six Hydroxyzine 25MG, which is a prescribed allergy pill.  They made me very tired and I hate taking any kind of pharmaceuticals.  

With the world we live in, we tend to consume unhealthy foods and beverages that are saturated with harmful chemicals.  Just the other day I was reading a couple of articles, one was 20 Ingredients To Memorize and Avoid In ANY Food You Consume and the other was Threat of 'secret' farm bill looms as Big Ag pushes Congress for preferential treatment !  After enduring my severe food allergies and reading these articles, I'm all for Promoting Organic Farming!

Now, I'm buying only organic produce and reading all of my food labels.  I just can't believe all the unhealthy additives and preservatives in our food today!  Help us save organic farming!  Soon Congress will be voting on a NEW FARM BILLWe need to stick together and tell Congress to Promote Organic Farming! 

By signing the petition, you are making your voice heard!  Tell Congress that you want your tax dollars to go towards programs that help families gain greater access to healthy, affordable food in the new farm bill!

Many families struggle to feed their children healthy meals.  Time, availability, and cost all conspire to make cooking and shopping healthfully a challenge for parents.  TakePart has created an action that asks government officials to encourage wider availability and affordability of healthy, organic products!

Did you know that the Federal Farm Bill is the most important issue affecting the food we eat, the kinds of crops American farmers grow, the environment and the nation’s food security?

It has become increasingly obvious that agriculture policy continues to be crafted in large part by and for special interest groups and Big Ag, rather than with the best interests of the people in mind!

Here's what you can do to help Promote Organic Farming!

  • Purchase your produce at a local farmers market or grow your own!
  • Sign the Petition to tell Congress to Promote Organic Farming!

I signed the petition which still waasn't comp[lete. I agree on how important it is and that big food companies and lobbies have too much power in Congress's decisions.
