This holiday season; please join me in giving thanks for the safe, wholesome and affordable food supply raised in our country.
While most folks never get the opportunity to see where their food comes from, the fact is that the food at the center of your family gatherings and holiday celebrations likely started on one of the many family farms and ranches across this great country.
America's farmers are proud of the role they play in raising food for our tables. They grow a wide variety of foods — everything from beef to broccoli — making it possible for people to enjoy a large array of foods that taste great and are good for us.
Unfortunately, not everyone has access to high-quality food. This year, we can all demonstrate our gratitude for the abundance and variety of food we're able to enjoy in this country by helping those who are in need. In the spirit of the holidays, support your local food bank. Donate food, money or help serve a meal.
Then, take a moment to say "thanks" for the bounty of food we sometimes take for granted and to the farmers who made it possible.
- Joe Moore,
Executive Vice President Indiana Beef Council
