The Nebraska Agribusiness Club celebrated National Ag Day, March 25, with an event put on with help from KX96.9 and Russ’s Market. In addition to supporting Russ’s Market’s 50th Anniversary, the club helped promote National Ag Day and Russ’s Market commitment to “Real. Local. Proud to support our Nebraska Growers and Producers.”
During our event, we had representatives from all across Nebraska’s agricultural industry. Prairieland Dairy had milk and cheese samples, Nebraska Pork Producers parked their wrapped bus in front of the store and had samples of pork tenderloin, the Nebraska Beef Council had tasty steak samples, Nebraska Soybean Board – Bean Team shared smoothies, Nebraska Corn Board handed out popcorn samples, Nebraska Wheat Board had cookies, and CommonGround volunteers gave kids pencils and shared with consumers recipes while having conversations about their farm and food.
The Food Bank of Lincoln was also on hand as well to promote the Nebraska Agribusiness Club’s offer to DOUBLE your DOLLARS (up to $5000). More exciting info on this to come!
