Food Check-Out Week ends Jan. 25

Modified: Monday, Feb 25th, 2013




Farmers and ranchers throughout America, as well as over 2,600 agricultural producers across Wyoming, are committed to producing safe, healthy food. The Uinta County Farm Bureau Federation, along with the Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation and the American Farm Bureau Federation, celebrated Food Check Out Week Feb. 19-25.

The Farm Bureau Federation recognizes that, by Feb. 19, the average American has earned enough disposable income to pay for their food supply for the entire year. It takes just five weeks to earn the income required to buy high quality, safe and wholesome meat, poultry, milk and eggs, compared to working four months just to pay taxes.

The Farm Bureau is concerned about putting nutritious meals on the table while sticking to a tight budget. We are emphasizing the importance of “stretching your grocery dollars with healthy, nutritious food.”

Food in America is affordable. Americans spend less than 10 percent of their income on food. Even during tough economic times, food is a bargain.

Visit with the Uinta County Farm Bureau and the Uinta County Sensible Nutrition Educator this week at Smith’s, Walmart and Benedict’s to show consumers how to stretch their grocery dollars on nutritious meals. Stop by the display and receive a free reusable grocery bag, compliments of the Uinta County Farm Bureau Federation.
