Join staff from the Union of Concerned Scientists and members of the Missouri Farmers Union and the Missouri Coalition for the Environment for breakfast, find out how the pending farm bill could impact you, and share coffee and conversation with local farmers and community members on the farm bill you want to see. You’ll also have a chance to send a message to your members of Congress
