Agriculture Impacts Everyone

Farming and ranching families make up less than 2% of the US population, yet their work affects every single person living in this country. Some people have no idea that their food is grown by family farmers who have dedicated their lives to building a sustainable food system and conserving our natural resources for future generations. Minnesota Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc. Foundation is on a mission to help share agriculture's story so students can make informed decisions in the future!

Become an advocate and encourage students to learn more about how our food is grown and produced and how agriculture is part of our everyday lives. By promoting the importance of agriculture literacy, we can help students understand the impact of farmers.
