The 2012 Farm Bill (not yet passed) will allocate about $100 billion EVERY year over the next five-ten years.
Reforming the Farm Bill is one of the most important steps for creating structural change and healthy food systems. Our priority is minimzing subsidies for commodity crops (such as corn and soy) which are used as cheap animal feed to massively support meat, dairy, and egg factory farms. Along with that we strengthen support for fresh produce and healthy food availability for low-income communities.
Every five years, the USDA releases their Dietary Guidelines for Americans. This is the government's official nutritional guidelines from which the MyPyramid (now the MyPlate) food teaching graphic is derived.
