Cultivate Your Relationship With Congress With Hometown In-District Tours
Share Your Success – and Photos – With Other IFPA Members
Tours allow your elected officials to see the direct impact on the economy, local community and how federal policies are impacting the growth and success of your fresh produce business. Members of Congress and their staff are precisely interested in the thoughts and opinions of their constituents back home.
Hometown in-district engagement is a vital way to provide a first-hand account and illustrate how you work, day in and day out, to provide healthy, safe and affordable food to all Americans.
