Farm Bureau’s Food Check-Out Week is aimed at helping American consumers learn how to shop strategically to put nutritious meals on the table with fewer dollars.

In recognition of Food Check-Out Week, the Wilson County Farm Bureau has made a donation to the Food Pantry Poth Area, the By His Hands Food Pantry of the Sutherland Springs Baptist Church, and the La Vernia Area Christian Food Pantry, recognizing the need everyone has to find solutions to feeding families healthful foods on a tight budget.

“Learning to use your grocery dollars wisely helps ensure that nutrition isn’t neglected,” said Ervin Kotzur, president of Wilson County Farm Bureau. “Fruits and vegetables -- along with whole grains, low-fat dairy products, lean meats, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts -- are an important part of a healthy diet. Buying fresh produce when it’s in season and costs less, while buying frozen fruits and vegetables when they’re not in season, is a smart way to stretch that dollar,” Kotzur said.

The Farm Bureau organization has developed Food Check-Out Week educational materials dedicated to helping consumers make healthier food purchases. Information is available on several topics, including “Tips for better nutrition on a tight budget,” “How much should I eat?” “Understanding food labels,” and “Understanding what MyPyramid means.”Now in its 14th year, Food Check-Out Week also highlights America’s safe, abundant, and affordable food supply, made possible largely by America’s productive farmers and ranchers. According to the most recent (2009) information from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Economic Research Service, American families and individuals spend, on average, less than 10 percent of their disposable personal income for food.
