Join Lutherans in Standing for a strong Farm Bill!

Help end Hunger! Support a strong Farm Bill in 2018!  

Farm BillOn Tuesday, January 23, Lutheran leaders from across the country will meet with members of Congress and their staff in Washington, D.C. to urge Congress to support a strong 2018 Farm Bill.

We will raise our voices together and call on Congress to protect the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), support international food assistance, promote the appropriate mix of conservation measures, strengthen safety nets for farmers and funding for research, and honor treaties and land claims by Indigenous Peoples.

Christ taught us in the Lord’s Prayer to pray for our daily bread. Martin Luther’s expansive understanding of daily bread includes not only what nourishes our bodies, but also the natural resources, labor and the economy, including the food supply chain.  Advocacy for good policies in the Farm Bill provides a means to express that love in a way that will contribute to the well-being of God’s people and creation and contribute to a just world where all are fed.

Your actions have and will continue to make a difference. We will raise our voices together to call on Congress to support a strong 2018 Farm Bill.
