It was sunrise at the Idaho Statehouse. Farm Bureau Vice President Richard Durrant, along with Women's Leadership Committee members, unload a car full of snack bags. These snack bags are part of the American Farm Bureau’s Our Food Link program. Leadership Chair Judy Woody: “What it is, is we tried to reach out to the public and educate them about where their food and fibre comes from. Things that we do here at the State House, here in Boise, is we do a little snack bags, which we put different commodities in it. We have anywhere from milk to cheese to honey to bread. Many different items from Idaho that we put in these bags for the legislators enjoy as a snack. And we have a little note in there explaining what Idaho Farm Bureau is and what agriculture what we do for the consumer.” The Our Food Link program is now more important than ever because the average American is now at least three generations removed from the farm. In fact, farm and ranch families make up less than 2 percent of the U.S. population. “We don't have a big enough bag to put all of the things that we produce in Idaho, 180 commodities. And so this is just a small sample of what we produce from the honey, the mint, the wheat, everything that goes into these bags. It's a great opportunity to find to remind the legislators that we are an important part of Idaho.” And a food bargain. Our food link reminds lawmakers and people everywhere not only the quality of U.S. food, but the cost as well. February 10th is basically a checkout day. That's the amount of time that it takes for you to raise the money to basically buy your food for the whole year. Like I say, we have a tax day, but that's actually called a free checkout day snack. That's Idaho food to lawmakers. A reminder of where our food comes from and the best, cheapest food in the world.
