Farm Bill Vote - Express Your Opinion

Just Food, Northfield's community co-op, has sent out a reminder that the Farm Bill is up for a vote tomorrow:
Farm Bill Vote Tomorrow: Call Today. The Farm Bill will govern our food and farm policy for the next five years, and the House has scheduled a vote for tomorrow (Thursday). Luckily, there is still time to make a difference. You can call Representative John Kline to express your hopes for the Farm Bill today.
There's been a lot of talk of weaning large commodity farms from government subsidies and providing more support to smaller farmers, or those growing the fruits and vegetables we'd like our children to be eating more of, for example. If you have an opinion, there is still time to express it.
