Food Safety Modernization Act Comments DUE

Comments are due 11/15!  Farmers and Foodies across the country are taking note of the detrimental effects FSMA rules could have on their local communities, especially to organic and small farmers.

Here is a recent piece of media from the Bradenton Herald in Florida:

We hope that you have submitted your comments to maintain local food access in YOUR community. Our friends over at the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition have put together templates and an easy-to-follow walk-through of how to participate in the public comment period. The deadline to comment is TOMORROW!
