Wendy finds a fun way to learn about the Farm Bill

This video came to me via an email from a friend and I recommend you watch it too!

It simplifies the discussion about the U.S. Farm Bill AND you get to watch an apple fight with a twinkie. Yes, that's right good food fights junk food.

Most people think the farm bill only affects farmers. Too few people know that many of our food programs like food stamps, emergency food assistance, school lunches, Women, Infant and Children Program (WIC) and the Farmers Market Nutrition Program are all part of the farm bill.

The Farm Bill really is about our food as much as the farmers who grow
it- so here it is!

    Great video. Actually, WIC is not included in the farm bill, but it's still a very important program.
