Congress narrowly passed a "farm only" version of the Farm Bill this year. The bill strips out funding to food stamp programs and food banks.



We’re live at the 2013 Public Health Farmers Market, and what better location from which to discuss the Farm Bill? This year’s bill, which contains stripped-out nutrition programs and food stamp funding, has left many food banks wondering how they’ll fare.  This hour we’ll talk about what’s next for the nation’s farmers and those who rely on food assistance.
