Neighbor to Neighbor

You know those people who stand outside the grocery stores? The ones who are ringing bells, handing out fliers, trying to give or get something from you?  Are you the type of person who stops and listens to what they have to say or one that skirts on by "promising" you'll stop on the way out only to take the back exit and walk a 1/4 mile just to avoid the conversation?

If you're the latter, stop and listen just for a moment.  Ms. Katie and I will be posted up outside of Dillons on Saturday morning promoting the Neighbor to Neighbor food drive.  We will be collecting food and money for our local families of Leavenworth County who dont have enough to  eat.

Being a farmer and a rancher, we already are providing food for the nation but as Kansas' largest industry, employer and economic driver; there is always more we can do.

“The Neighbor to Neighbor food drive can help us reduce hunger in Kansas but it also gives us a chance to say thank you to our state’s farmers and ranchers,” Secretary of Agriculture Dale Rodman said. “Today’s farmers and ranchers work 365 days a year to raise food to feed your family and mine. They work to continuously improve their practices to raise safe, wholesome food. About 30 years ago, one farmer fed approximately 56 people on average. Today, one farmer feeds 155 people. I hope all Kansans will join us in this important effort to help our neighbors and will also take a minute to say thank you to the men and women who raised that food.” 

So, come by and see us.  We'll be at the Dillons in Leavenworth from 10:00 am - 12:00 pm  She is quite possibly the cutest pregnant lady you'll ever meet and I just want to shake your hand for helping us help those in need.  After all, it's going to be a beautiful day!!
