Oregon U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is proposing three changes to the farm bill to create job and improve health of Americans. One proposal is to allow states to change the food stamp program, so it makes more use of locally grown food.  Wyden also wants the farm bill to include provisions for farm-to-school programs, and gleaners; those are groups that collect left over food and give it to the needy.
