GCCA is calling on U.S. based members to contact their Senators and Representatives in support of H.R. 4612 and S. 2570, known as the FRIDGE Act. The FRIDGE Act would strengthen USDA’s trade programs by adding authority to focus additional efforts on improving cold chain infrastructure in developing markets, which is essential for expanding trade and reducing food loss and waste. The FRIDGE Act was introduced with bipartisan support in the House by Reps. Randy Feenstra (IA), Tracey Mann (KS), Jim Costa (CA) and Salud Carbajal (CA), and in the Senate by Senators Braun (IN) and Fetterman (PA).  The goal of the campaign is to gain broad support from members of Congress and increase the number of cosponsors for the legislation.

Participation in this campaign is easy. Just fill out the simple form and the system will automatically send a letter to your elected officials. We ask that you participate in both the House and Senate campaigns to build support for the FRIDGE Act in both chambers of Congress! Please take action by clicking here.
