Food Day Recognizes Kansas Agriculture

Across the United States, October 24 is recognized as Food Day.

“In Kansas, agriculture is our largest industry and we are excited to celebrate the contributions of all farmers and ranchers on Food Day and the other 364 days of the year, ” says Kansas Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman.

“In order to meet the food needs in the United States and around the globe, farmers and ranchers will have to double production in the next 20-30 years. This is a food security issue and we need everyone involved in production agriculture to meet current and future food needs,” Rodman says.

Kansas Food Day priorities include promoting well-balanced, nutrient rich eating habits; supporting all Kansas farmers and ranchers; continuously improving agricultural production; and reducing hunger in Kansas communities.
