Thank a Farmer on World Food Day

World Food Day started on October 16, 1979, to celebrate the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in 1945.

This year the UN General Assembly designated 2014 as the “International Year of Family Farming.”  They are focusing world attention on the role that family farming plays in supporting global agriculture and in eradicating hunger and poverty.

On World Food Day, we join with millions of others to salute family farmers and ranchers for the work they do. They truly are “Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth.”
