Kansas State University will join the national agricultural advocacy group “I Love Farmers . . . They Feed My Soul” today to promote the importance of American agriculture. Student volunteers will be on the K-State campus asking the question, “Where’s the food without the farmer?” The ag advocates will create conversations with K-State students about Kansas and American agriculture. Materials leading students to credible sources of information about agriculture will be distributed.
K-State is one of nine institutions of higher learning involved in today’s event. Others participating are Texas A&M University, Oklahoma State University, Iowa State University, the University of Arkansas, Cal Poly State University, Fresno State University, the University of California-Santa Barbara and Woodland College.
Advocates involved in the K-State movement will be located in the green space in front of Waters Hall, in the student union and between McCain Auditorium and Calvin Hall from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“I Love Farmers” is a tax-exempt, charitable organization created to help the younger generation understand the importance of where food comes from and who produces it. For more information, go to www.ilovefarmers.org or the group’s page on Facebook.
