Grow Montana’s Farm Bill Advocacy Toolkit

For nearly 20 years, Grow Montana has focused on advocating for food policy issues at the state legislature. For the first time in our history, the coalition is stepping into the National forum by providing advocacy and input on the US Farm Bill as it is set to be reauthorized for the next five years. We have developed this toolkit to help our network learn more about the Farm Bill and opportunities for action. 

Read on to learn more about what the Farm Bill is, why it is important and how you can get involved. Also included is our Grow Montana Farm Bill Policy Platform that outlines specific changes to the 2023 Farm Bill the coalition thinks will be an improvement for Montana’s local food system. 

We have also developed a sign-on letter to be delivered to Montana’s Congressional Delegates in early September. You can read the letter HERE and you can add your signature. Montana citizens and organizations are all welcome to sign-on.
