is a time to give thanks for the valuable partnerships between urban and rural residents. This year the week will be celebrated statewide, Nov. 14-21.
Farmers produce high quality food and fiber for everyone to enjoy. Their partnerships with grocers, truck drivers, processors, scientists, consumers and many others all play important roles in getting food from the fields to household tables.
Farm-City Week activities highlight various food donation activities by farmers and ranchers on behalf of food banks and other charitable organizations in local communities throughout Florida.
“Thanksgiving is a time to express appreciation for the abundant harvest of the food that we share with our family and friends,” said Florida Farm Bureau President John L. Hoblick. “Farm-City Week is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the partnerships that help us bring the nutritious food we all enjoy into our homes.”
In addition to food donations, local Farm Bureau members will sponsor various other Farm-City Week events including farm family recognitions, educational demonstrations, vintage farm equipment displays, farm tours, legislative luncheons and essay and poster contests.
