Join the Kansas Department of Agriculture in partnership with Ag Student Council for viewing of 'Farmers For America'

By Lacy Pitts

Join the College of Agriculture Student Council and the Kansas Department of Agriculture for screening of "Farmers for America" at 6 p.m. March 29 in the Bluemont Room of the K-State Student Union.

Entry will be a nonperishable good for the Kansas Department of Agriculture's statewide "Neighbor to Neighbor" food drive. 

"Farmers for America," narrated by Mike Rowe, traces the extraordinary changes coming to America's food system as more and more consumers flock to farmers markets, embrace farm-to-table lifestyles and insist on knowing where their food is coming from. At the center of the film are the farmers, young and old, who provide the spirit and energy to bring urban and rural America together over what both share in common: our food. These farmers reflect nothing less than the face of America. With the average age of today's farmer at 60, and rural America losing population as the cost of land and equipment soars, this film reveals the people waiting to take their place, the practices they're championing and the obstacles they must overcome.
