Farm Bureau sparks awareness about food
Minnesota Farm Bureau celebrated February as Food Awareness Month.
The effort sparked awareness of all things food, from the farmers who grow and raise food, to food safety and availability.
"Farm Bureau's Food Awareness Month is aimed at helping American consumers learn about the food they eat every day," said Mike Rouillard, Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Promotion and Education 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 hosted events and worked with food shelves to increase awareness of local food and hunger.
