Friday morning was Food Awareness Day at the HyVee Food Store in Faribault. Food Awareness Day was organized by the Rice County Farm Bureau and also sponsored by the Dakota Rice Corn and Soybean Growers, Rice County Pork Producers, Rice County American Dairy Association, Minnesota Turkey Growers and HyVee Faribault. It was nice to visit with HyVee shoppers and pass out discount coupons for any meat product from the Corn and Soybean Growers, pork Product from the Pork Producers and milk from the American Dairy Association.

In addition a donation was made to the Faribault Area Food Shelf. In fact, because of matching contributions the Faribault Area Food Shelf ended up with about $1000. Terra Langevin stopped by to pick on me and made a donation too!
