USDA Farm Bill
Christopher Bosso, Ph.D, Professor of Public Policy; Director, Master of Public Policy and Master of Public Administration Programs, Northeastern University, and author of Framing the Farm Bill: Interests, Ideology, and the Agricultural Act of 2014 (University of Kansas Press, 2017)
Annika Nielsen, Program Coordinator, Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic (FLPC), and law students Irène Grialou and Amy Chyao.
The Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic has spent over a year and a half coordinating the Farm Bill Law Enterprise (FBLE), a national partnership of law schools working toward a farm bill that reflects the long-term needs of our society. FBLE has conducted research and developed recommendations for the 2018 Farm Bill, and recently published in three reports: (1) Diversified Agricultural Economies; (2) Food Access, Nutrition, and Public Health; (3) Productivity and Risk Management. FLPC also released a report entitled “Opportunities to Reduce Food Waste in the 2018 Farm Bill,” which was not developed by FBLE. https://www.chlpi.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Opportunities-to-Reduce-Food-Waste-in-the-2018-Farm-Bill_May-2017.pdf
