The Barren County Farm Bureau met with Glasgow Mayor Harold Armstrong and Barren County Judge-Executive Micheal Hale as they signed a proclamation declaring Feb. 2-8 as Food Check-Out Week in Barren County.
Representatives of the Barren County FFA were also present.
Armstrong and Hale were presented baskets of Kentucky-grown food.
Food in America is the cheapest and safest in the world. Farm Bureau wants all Americans to realize how lucky they are, so each year Farm Bureau celebrates Food Check-Out Week in February.
Farm Bureau wants people to check out the prices of our food in America to the cost of food elsewhere in the world. Some people in other countries spend most of their income on their food.
In America, about 11 percent of our income is spent on food for the year. In America, we work longer to pay for federal taxes than for food. The next time you eat a meal, realize that in America we are eating the cheapest and safest food in the world. Remember to thank our farmers.
