The Farm Bill is perhaps the single most significant piece of land-use legislation enacted in the United States, yet many citizens remain unaware of its power and scope. 

With subsidies ballooning toward $25 billion dollars per year, the Farm Bill largely dictates who grows what crops, on what acreage, and under what conditions — all with major impacts on the country's rural economies, health and nutrition, national security, and biodiversity. 

As debate and wrangling over the 2007 Farm Bill intensifies, Food Fight offers a highly informative and visually engaging overview of legislation that literally shapes our food system, our bodies, and our future.
