.President Biden, we’re pleading with you– please take steps to guarantee American household farms can still earn a living, that rural communities flourish, and that we have a food system that works for consumers, our environment, nationwide security, and our democracy. We have actually been entering the incorrect direction for far too long.All 3 of us have actually seen our little Midwest towns get smaller, the farms end up being less as Huge Ag gets bigger. We need an administration dedicated to neutralizing the stranglehold that a handful of multinational corporations have on each step of our food system.Current supply chain disruptions in the industrial meat market provide a vivid example of how centralized corporate control has made our food system less resilient. Lobbyists for huge meat companies have actually successfully compromised enforcement of employee safety, antitrust, and competitors rules, and ecological and food safety defenses.
