EAT Local Foods Act One Pager

Senator Reed is poised to introduce The EAT Local Foods Act, which would create a permanent formula grant program for state and tribal governments to procure local foods for distribution to community food assistance programs in our state. Modeled after the Biden Administration’s temporary Local Food Purchase Assistance Cooperative Agreement Program (LFPA), the EAT Local Foods Act program would help accomplish three main objectives:
• Help small local producers access new market opportunities;
• Combat food insecurity; and
• Strengthen domestic agriculture supply chain resilience.
