Concerns about the cost of healthy diet being out of reach remains on the minds of many Americans as the nation continues to face economic woes.
However, according to an Agriculture Department study, the cost of eating healthy hasn’t changed as much as some less healthy alternatives.
Farm Bureau’s Food Check-Out Week was Feb. 20-26, 2011, which focused on helping Americans learn to stretch their grocery bill dollars further with healthy, nutritious food.
American farmers and ranchers are committed to producing safe, healthy and abundant food. And they share a common concern of putting nutritious meals on the table for their families too while staying on a tight budget.
Please join me in thanking local businesses involved in agriculture and those who support our area farmers.
Also, thank you to WCMT (Thunderbolt Broadcasting) for allowing Farm Bureau to broadcast PSAs to our community on the importance of Ag.
And finally, thank you to our American farmers and ranchers. What would our lives be like without you?
