In connection to TFCW Refugio County Farm Bureau donated a $100 check to the Good Samaritan Ministries of Refugio and Food Bank.
Local shoppers Debra Hipp and Johnny Schlabach received a $50 HEB gift card each.
As we celebrate Texas Food Connection Week, Refugio County Farm Bureau encourages you to ask yourselves, what would life be like if you walked into your local grocery store only to find bare shelves? Thanks to farmers and ranchers across the Lone Star State and the nation, that’s a scenario most of us are not likely to see in our lifetimes.
As we recognize the hard work and dedication of those men and women during Texas Food Connection Week, We also encourage everyone — farmers and consumers alike — to seek common ground.
Texas Food Connection Week is about more than connecting farmers with their customers and vice versa. It’s also about promoting a general understanding that both parts of the equation are equally important — those who produce the food and those who consume it.
Without customers, farmers and ranchers have no markets. Without farmers and ranchers, customers face bare shelves.
