The newest American Farm Bureau Federation committee hit the ground running in 2015. The committee formed with the mission to develop and centralize resources that inspire and equip Farm Bureau to convey the significance of agriculture.
The Promotion & Education Committee fills an important role in bridging the gap between farmers and consumers by providing tools and resources to other Farm Bureau members who are eager to help share agriculture's story.
The P&E Committee is appointed by the American Farm Bureau Federation president. Their roles and responsibilities include:
- Surfacing, prioritizing and developing ideas for agricultural promotion and education.
- Providing effective, practical tools for implementing grassroots projects.
- Increasing opportunities for training volunteers to be effective agricultural advocates.
Connecting to Agriculture - Bridging the Gap Between Field and Fork
People want to know where their food comes from and we welcome the opportunity to meet that need. The interest in credible resources on food production and distribution has increased with the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Promotion & Education Committee is pleased to provide an online resource about agriculture and related industries to help members convey the importance of agriculture. The role of those who work in agriculture is of value to our communities and the nation as it provides jobs for more than 21 million Americans or 11% of the total workforce.
