Corsicana — For the week of Feb. 17 to 23, Texas Farm Bureau celebrated Texas Food Connection Week, a time to connect farmers with their customers and spur conversations about agriculture and food-related issues.

During this week, County Farm Bureau Boards of Directors from across the state participate in opportunities to give back to the community; everything from organizing community activities to donating to local philanthropies. The farmers and ranchers of Navarro County depend on the patronage of the community to support their families, just as the community depends on the products they provide.

“Texas Food Connection Week is about finding common ground with our customers, and we’re excited about sharing what we do on our farms and ranches,” said Navarro County Farm Bureau President Kenneth Murray.

This year, the Navarro County Farm Bureau Board of Directors presented the Food Pantry Ministry with a $250 donation. The Navarro County Farm Bureau Board of Directors appreciates the support that the Food Pantry Ministry provides for the community, and hopes that this donation will go to support them as well as to serve as a reminder of the impact that agriculture has in our everyday lives.

For more information about local activities please contact the Navarro County Farm Bureau office at (903) 872-6678.
