The Farm Bill is federal legislation that must be passed every five years. It governs a range of food and agricultural programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The upcoming 2023 Farm Bill is a critical opportunity for Congress to address long-standing nutritional inequities, strengthen the food system infrastructure, and lower the burden of healthcare costs for millions of Americans.
