As you know, as Arizona Farm Bureau’s Communication Education and Marketing Director, this year in monthly Arizona Agriculture I’ve been having ongoing conversations with various stakeholders in the food chain. Every one of the conversation has been an enlightening experience.
- Mike Ivers, a Chicago native, loves Arizona agriculture.
- Ivers is passionate about the Yuma community.
- We must see hunger as an ongoing war and never let up.
- Hunger impacts all of us in more ways than we know.
- Arizona agriculture fights the battle on all levels donating 832 truckloads (18 wheelers) over the past 5 years. in just the Yuma area alone. Truckloads that went all over the country.
- In Yuma, Arizona agriculture has donated 6 million pounds of produce to the Yuma community.
- Hunger does not discriminate; all classes, all races from all walks of life can experience it at any time in one’s life.
If you wonder what agriculture does to feed us daily, just check out what it does to fill truly hungry bellies. God bless America and agriculture.
