2015 Food Check-Out Week

Fayette County Farm Bureau celebrated Food Check out week by donating $500 to the Backpack Program through God’s Pantry to help hungry children have food to eat on the weekends. The significance of Food Check Out Week is to show how affordable our food supply is here in the U.S. On average, an American’s spend just 10% of their disposable income for food. That means that the average 4 person family will earn enough money to pay for their entire food supply for 1 year in seven weeks of working. In comparison it takes 100 days to work to earn enough income to pay your taxes.
