The US Farm Bill has been the cornerstone of food and agricultural legislation since its inception in 1933. Its legislative outcomes are implemented by numerous institutions that shape and influence all stages of the US food system. This report provides an in-depth analysis of the US Farm Bill with a particular focus on how Farm Bill policies are shaped by corporate power and how such policies affect the lives of marginalized communities. In order to support coalition-building efforts for the growth of an inclusive, broad-based movement in the United States, this report provides a thorough analysis, a set of comprehensive policy interventions, and a vision for a food sovereignty movement that puts belonging at its center.
