Minnesota Farm Bureau commemorates Food Awareness activities

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 availability.

“Farm Bureau’s Food Awareness activities aim to help American consumers learn about the food they eat every day,” said Tony Seykora, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Promotion and Education (P&E) Committee chair. “Minnesota farmers and ranchers take pride in ensuring safe food choices for Minnesota families.”

To mark the occasion, county Farm Bureaus throughout the state will be hosting events and working with food shelves to increase awareness of local food and hunger.

“Farmers are committed to providing safe and healthy food choices for all Americans. As Farm Bureau members, we want to talk with families about our shared goal of nutritious, safe meals,” said Seykora.

Minnesota Farm Bureau – Farmers/Families/Food is comprised of 78 local Farm Bureau associations across Minnesota. Members make their views known to political leaders, state government officials, special interest groups and the general public. Programs for young farmers and ranchers develop leadership skills and improve farm management.

Promotion and Education Committee members work with programs such as Ag in the Classroom and safety education for children. Join Farm Bureau today and support efforts to serve as an advocate for rural Minnesota, www.fbmn.org.
