Your Call 100907 Food Stamps and the Farm Bill

Why is it so easy to get a subsidy to grow food and so hard to get a subsidy to buy it? On the next Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the food stamp provision of the 2007 Farm Bill, which is scheduled to be voted on next week. Subsidies for corn farmers are up, while funding for food stamps is down. Over 35 million Americans will go to bed hungry tonight. Will the Farm Bill include improvements to food stamp and nutrition programs? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
