Healthy Food Initiative

September 7, 2011

Healthy Initiative Conference - 2011The MFMA hosted a booth at the Healthy Food Initiative on September 1st. The Subject was “They call It Farm Bill, We call It Food Bill” The conference, held in Maplewood, was organized by Representative Carnahan. There were approximately 110 people in attendance. We had 59 people stop at our booth. Our president, Debby Campbell, made up a basket and staffed the booth.   The basket was filled with fresh local produce, county fair award winning jam, freshly baked bread and one of the DFM cookbooks. Everything was from Debby’s market in DeSoto. As you can see from the photo, it was a great prize!
