Farm-City Week Celebrates Food Abundance and Special Relationships


BRADENTON -- Most consumers in the U.S. enjoy a bountiful, nutritious food supply. This abundance is made possible by the working relationships between farm families and city residents. Each year, communities in the Sunshine State celebrate Farm-City Week, to honor those relationships and their contributions to the quality of life available for Floridians and other people across the nation. This year's events are scheduled for the week of November 22-28. 

Farmers and ranchers produce our food. Shippers, processors, retail store owners and many other non-farm residents create a network that delivers it to your dinner table. Finally, as consumers, we too support the economic viability of these enterprises with purchases at the grocery store or our local farmers' market.

Florida Farm Bureau members will sponsor multiple Farm-City Week events to celebrate the relationships from which we all benefit. Many activities will involve donations of food and money to local charitable agencies that provide aid for needy citizens. Sharing an abundant harvest is a Farm Bureau tradition.

“Our members are always prepared to take the initiative in supporting their communities,” said Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick. “They are willing to reach out beyond their daily calling and volunteer for public service as they participate in worthy local projects for the good of everyone.”

Stay tuned for details on local Farm-City Week events!
