When we think of the holidays and food, naturally, the first things that probably come to mind are our favorite family recipes, baking, carving the turkey, and maybe even feeling full after a big holiday meal. Holiday meals are also a time to come together with friends and family and celebrate good health and good fortune. It’s a time to be thankful for life’s blessings, and often we share thanks at our dinner tables.
This year as you’re in the kitchen cooking Thanksgiving dinner or sitting down over a festive meal, take a moment to share your thanks for those that helped provide the food that is on your table.
Farmers tirelessly work year-round to grow the ingredients that you eat every day. For example, U.S. wheat farmers grow enough wheat to produce 146 billion loaves of bread annually. While farmers and their families don’t seek recognition for their hard work, we want to share our thanks for their efforts to feed, clothe and fuel the world.
From the National Wheat Foundation, thank you to our U.S. wheat growers and to all farmers and ranchers!
