Friday Fun Farm Facts--Farm Bill


More than 84% of farm bill related spending goes to food and nutrition programs like food stamps, not to farmers. Only 11% of funding in the farm bill goes to farm policies.

U.S. farm policy costs Americans just 2.3 cents per meal for a total of 6.9 cents per day.
