Join Elanor Starmer, USDA's National Coordinator for Local and Regional Food Systems, for a Hangout about market opportunities for local and regional food, and what the USDA can do to help.  We will also talk about what role the current Food, Farm and Jobs Bill (#FarmBill) plays in USDA’s work on local and regional food systems.  

During the Hangout we'll talk to local food farmers, food businesses, and students all actively engaged in the local/regional food system.

We also want to include YOUR questions and comments. Send questions in advance or share your story by using #MyFarmBillon   Twitter,YouTube or Facebook. Tweet us @USDA, post a comment on our Facebook wall www.facebook.com/usda

See what others have been saying about #MyFarmBill  on our Storify board: http://storify.com/USDA/calling-ag-supporters-share-what-s-at-stake

At USDA, we know that local and regional food systems are an important part of America’s diverse #agriculture sector.  Local and regional food is a multi-billion dollar market opportunity for America’s farmers, ranchers and food businesses. From the produce vendor at one of the nation’s 8,100 farmers markets to the operating  220 food hubs across America to the robust farm to school activities in each state,  the expanding market opportunity for local and regional food continues to gain momentum.

USDA stands ready to aid and assist America’s #farmers and #ranchers who want to participate in this growing sector. We’ve been coordinating our work via the Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food Initiative. However, our ability to continue supporting the local and regional food marketplace is at stake without the passage of a Food, Farms and Job Bill.
