A network of 35 farmers from five states are offering free meals to consumers through “Farmers Feed US,” a program which offers consumers the chance to win free groceries for breakfast, lunch and dinner – for an entire year.
Following a highly successful campaign in Ohio where more than 200,000 consumers registered for a chance to win, and during an ongoing sweepstakes in Michigan where more than 105,000 consumers have registered to win free food, three more states have joined the effort. Indiana, Missouri and Iowa have now launched Farmers Feed US programs, featuring farmers from each of their respective states.
The Farmers Feed US program allows consumers the chance to meet and visit with the farmers who grow their food. Short, online video farm tours educate consumers on how farmers produce safe, nutritious and affordable food. Consumers also have the opportunity to register in a “Free Groceries for a Year” sweepstakes.
“As more and more people move from an agricultural background to the suburbs and cities, it’s important for consumers to understand how food is delivered to their tables,” says Terry Fleck, executive director of the Center for Food Integrity. “And there’s nobody better to factually and passionately tell that story than the farmers of this country.”
Farmers in the five states represent mainly livestock and grain farmers and some fruit and vegetable growers.
