Regardless of which team you’re rooting for, your football party will be the real winner this Sunday thanks to a team of 2 million farm families working on your behalf. Pro football championship Sunday ranks among the top days of the year for food consumption in the United States. As you watch your favorite team and eat your favorite snacks, here are some facts about how that food makes it to your home.
Farmers are meeting the food needs of America’s families while continually improving the land and water for future generations. They have voluntarily enrolled 140 million acres in conservation programs. That’s more than the size of California and New York combined.
“Farmers are proud to grow the food America’s families rely on for Championship Sunday, and every other day of the year,” said American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall. “We all benefit from one of the most affordable and abundant food supplies in the world. It’s made possible by hardworking farm families and supported by strong agricultural policies in the farm bill. As we all enjoy this year’s big game, we encourage lawmakers to get a new farm bill past the goal line and bring a win home to every family in America.”
