Pick it up.
That little pebble.
The one by your foot.
Now throw it. Right into the water. You don't even have to skip it.
One little action. Just one.
Can have a ripple effect. And with all that farmers do for us every day. It's the least we can do.
The Issue: Farmers Need & Deserve our Support
Farmers make up less than 2% of the US population. That's it.
98% of the 2 million farms in the US are family owned and operated.
11% of farmers are serving or have served in the US military.
Farmers see only 8 cents of every dollar spent on food at home and away from home.
Farmers are 3.5 times more likely to commit suicide than the general public.
To build a community that supports farmers by recognizing them, celebrating them and knowing their stories.
To unite that community on Instagram through social media that shares the hashtag #forfarmers.
To raise awareness about all that farmers do through podcasts, stories on blogs and social media, and an active community united #forfarmers.
To contribute financial support from the #forfarmers community directly to farmers who need it most.
TO BUILD A MOVEMENT
that makes being #forfarmers a part of daily life!
To make sure that 100% of our farmers feel seen, heard, appreciated, valued & important as an essential part of our society & that they are well-supported in their work.
