We can't wait for the 13th Annual Farm & Nutrition Day! This exciting one-day, interactive educational adventure for third graders allows students to participate in activities that showcase both the agricultural industry, as well as focus on the benefits of making healthy eating choices.
What is Farm and Nutrition Day?
Farm and Nutrition Day is a program that provides basic and current facts about the agricultural industry, gives students and teachers the opportunity to become familiar with food and animal production and allows personal contact with people in the industry. Our goal is to introduce children to the values of good health and nutrition habits, as well as educate them about agriculture in the San Joaquin Valley and their world. We also want to create a positive awareness among the youth of all the contributions that agriculture makes to our community and the economy.
How can I help and/or participate in Farm and Nutrition Day?
Become a Presenter
We are always looking for people in the industry to present at our event. We have four (4) types of presentations: demonstrations, presentations, booths and equipment.
Become a Sponsor
Because of the high costs of transportation, we are hoping to assist each visiting class with a monetary donation to help off-set some or all of the bus costs that day. Unfortunately, about 90% of the classes registered to attend will not be able to attend if their transportation is not sponsored. So financial support is greatly needed!
Become a Volunteer
In order to make this day the success we want it to be, we need people to assist us as volunteers. A variety of tasks – guides, set-up, assisting presenters, moving supplies, clean-up, and more need to be completed. We cannot do this alone and would like to encourage you to volunteer and ask your friends to come along and give a helping hand. We will need 100 or more volunteers to make this day a success.
If you are interested in being a Presenter, Sponsor or Volunteer at the 2018 event, please contact the Fresno County Farm Bureau directly at (559)237-0263.
