Family Farmers Play Significant Role in Eradicating World Hunger
November 5, 2014
In celebration of the United Nations’ 2014 International Year of Family Farming, this month South Dakota Farmers Union joins National Farmers Union (NFU) in highlighting the substantial impact family farmers have on world hunger and food security issues.
“With Thanksgiving approaching, we should all be thankful for the role our family farmers and ranchers play in eradicating world hunger,” said Doug Sombke, S.D. Farmers Union President.
Earlier this year, South Dakota Farmers Union launched a campaign to highlight farm and ranch families from across the state by featuring a different farm or ranch family each month.
“This was our way to spotlight the families behind the food, fiber and fuel we all consume. What better way to celebrate family farmers and ranchers than to share their stories,” said Sombke.
To date, Farmers Union has highlighted four farm families. To read their stories and view a photo gallery of the farm and ranch families highlighted, click here.
