Roots of Change focuses primarily on legislation and administrative rulemaking in California because we believe that the state that produces half of the U.S.-grown fruits, nuts, and vegetables automatically influences food and farming policies throughout the nation. At the same time, key federal legislation like the Farm Bill and Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR) significantly influence how taxpayer’s dollars are spent in the food system, and as such, we activate our resources and networks during these key federal policy deliberations.

ROC is monitoring federal legislation and will post when action is needed.
