Miss American speaks out
Every day is Food Day to America's farmers and ranchers, says Miss America 2011 Teresa Scanlan. The high-profile agriculture advocate is joining the Animal Agriculture Alliance to announce the launch of http://www.realfarmersrealfood.com with a call to action for Americans to celebrate the hard work of our nation's food producers. In the past I haven't paid too much attention to the Miss American competition, however I've been inspired by Teresa's her strong agriculture roots and passion for educating the public on where food comes from.
I think it's great to have strong public figures promoting agriculture and sharing the truth about this important industry. As an advocate for the industry, I am excited to continue following the Real Farmers Real Food website.
