Milan No-Till Field Day Farmers vs Hunger Tour

Author:  Comments Off on Milan No-Till Field Day Farmers vs Hunger Tour

While you are at the  July 28th Milan No-Till Field Day, stop in on Tour O:Farmers vs Hunger in the Ag Museum and help us package up mac & cheese meals. See below for additional information

This tour will run continuously from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Stop by the West Tennessee Agricultural Museum, cool off from the hot sun, and participate in the Farmers vs. Hunger tour stop. This stop is a unique blend of what can be accomplished when farmers and others in the agricultural community come together to address the needs of those who are in need. This stop features a hands-on activity in the form of an assembly line where participants will put together a soy meal protein and vitamin-enhanced macaroni and cheese product that is a substantial meal for children and adults. The soybean ingredient is a vital component of this nutritious and affordable meal. Soybeans are grown on 1.7 million acres in Tennessee and are the largest row crop in the state. In Tennessee, 16.9 percent of the state’s population, including 24.0 percent of the children, are food insecure and can’t afford enough food to consistently meet their basic needs. The meals packaged at this tour will be distributed to food banks and food pantries throughout the local area. Stop in and help stamp out hunger while attending the Milan No-Till Field Day. Activities will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will continue throughout the day.
