Project Description:

Food & Water Watch (FWW) requests funding to support our continuing work to hold the industrial meat production system in the United States accountable for many environmental and public health harms it creates. Our organization takes a holistic approach to addressing our broken food system, employing robust campaigns that use legal tools, organizing, communications and outreach and strategic research to counter wrongful industry practices. This funding will be used to allow us to further expand the legal work we are doing to stop the big meat producers from misrepresenting their products to the public, as well as opposing new swine inspection protocols that will mean more adulterated pork entering into our food system. Our goal is to use the courts to stop these practices from continuing and force a more honest and protective system of meat production in the US.
