The U.S. is the world’s largest exporter of agriculture products, shipping $140 billion in goods in 2013. Yet, in the same year, 1 in 6 people in the U.S. still faced hunger issues. This Thanksgiving season, we’ve teamed up with Feeding America® to sponsor #Thankful4Ag, a social initiative that will help provide up to 200,000 meals to food-insecure families in America. From now through Dec. 19, people are invited to visit www.Thankful4Ag.com to create a “digital meal” showcasing their favorite classic holiday foods. For each digital meal that is created and/or each share of #Thankful4Ag, we will donate $1 to Feeding America, which is equivalent to 10 meals secured for partner food banks.
Local Farm Mom blogger Kristin Reeves reveals how she is #Thankful4Ag as she prepares her favorite holiday recipe for cooking enthusiasts and highlights our national initiative to fight hunger in America. Kristin also embraces the spirit of Thanksgiving on her blog with a special #Thankful4Ag themed blog post. Kristin’s post, Hunger In America, emphasizes her gratitude for the farm that helps to feed her family and introduces the digital meal she has whipped up to help those who are hungry.
Watch her delicious recipe come to life below, and follow @LocalFarmMom on Twitter to learn more about life on the farm.
Join Kristin and other farm advocates in supporting our national initiative by building your own digital meal of your favorite holiday foods at www.Thankful4Ag.com.
