Wherever there’s local food, there are farmers feeding communities and creating jobs. Farmers and ranchers are responding to skyrocketing demand for fresh, healthy food everywhere: at farmers’ markets, grocery stores, and in schools. The Local Farms, Food, and Jobs Act creates jobs and spurs economic growth through food and farms – something everyone can get behind.
