Farmers in Wilson County will reach out to local customers to talk with them about how their food is grown during Texas Food Connection Week, Sunday through Saturday, Feb. 17-23.

Farmers and ranchers across the state will organize community activities, donate to local philanthropies, and seek to spur conversations with their customers during the week-long program.

“Texas Food Connection Week is about finding common ground with our customers,” said Tom Ortmann, Wilson County Farm Bureau president. “Our neighbors and friends have questions about agriculture and their food. This is an opportunity for farmers and ranchers to sit down with them and have a conversation.”

The Wilson County Farm Bureau has made donations to local county food banks to mark Texas Food Connection Week. “Food is one thing that connects us all. We all want to provide our families with fresh, nutritious food that’s been grown close to home,” Ortmann said.

Texas Food Connection Week, formerly Food Check-Out Week, was established to connect farmers with their customers and spur conversations about agriculture and food-related issues, including affordability, nutrition, animal welfare, profitability, and productivity.
