To point out the affordability of food in America, Milam County Farm Bureau will promote Food Affordability Day in Rockdale and Thorndale on Friday, Sept. 27.

The idea behind Food Affordability Day is to bring awareness to the fact that American farmers and ranchers are unmatched in their ability to consistently produce an abundance of safe, nutritious and affordable food.

According to the most recent information from USDA, American families and individuals spend, on average, less than 10 percent of their disposable personal income for food.

Therefore, Milam County Farm Bureau is reimbursing diners the “farmer and rancher share” of their meal. Farm Bureau is giving away $1 coupons, representing the farmer and rancher share, for each breakfast meal purchased at Corona’s Restaurant in Rockdale and each noon meal at the Downtown Café in Thorndale on Friday, Sept. 27.

Join Mi lam County Farm Bureau for a meal at Corona’s in Rockdale and Downtown Café in Thorndale on Friday and receive your “farmer and rancher share” of $1 for a meal to help highlight our ag producers efforts to bring safe, affordable and nutritious food to American families.
