Minnesota Ag Connection - 02/08/2018
Minnesota Farm Bureau is focusing on Food Awareness during the months of February and March. Food Awareness activities were created to bring awareness to all things food -- from the farmers who grow and raise our food, to food safety and
nutrition to food choices.
"Farm Bureau's Food Awareness activities aim to help American consumers learn about the food they eat every day," said Peter Bakken, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Promotion & Education (P&E) Committee chair. "Minnesota
farmers and ranchers take pride in ensuring healthy food choices for Minnesota families."
To mark the occasion, county Farm Bureaus throughout the state will be hosting meet a farmer type events and working with food shelves to increase awareness of local food and hunger.
"Farmers are committed to providing safe and nutritious food choices for all Americans. As Farm Bureau members, we want to talk with families about our shared goal of nutritious, safe meals," said Bakken.
