FRESNO COUNTY FARM & NUTRITION DAY SEEKs PRESENTERS, VOLUNTEERS, SPONSORS

 

The ninth Farm & Nutrition Day, sponsored by the Fresno County Farm Bureau, the Big Fresno Fair and Friends of the Fair, is scheduled for March 21, from 9 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., at the Fresno Fairgrounds. This year's program is experiencing record registration from schools throughout the county!

Farm & Nutrition Day will provide facts about food and fiber production in Fresno County, with a focus on proper nutrition and healthy eating to more than 4,000 third grade students, teachers and chaperones.  The sponsoring organizations are seeking individuals to participate as presenters, sponsors and volunteers.

 

Additionally, donations, both monetary and in-kind of any amount, go a long way to help offset event costs.  Many contributions will go towards transportation reimbursements for participating schools that qualify.
