  • Compared to other expenses facing America’s families, food is a
    bargain. Americans have earned enough wages to pay for their
    yearly food supply by mid-February, yet Americans work until mid-
    April to earn enough wages to pay for their taxes.

  • Today, 98 percent of U.S. farms are operated by individuals,
    family partnerships or family corporations.

  • Americans enjoy the luxury of spending just 10% of their
    disposable income on food. Whereas, in nations like Pakistan
    people spend 50% or more of their disposable income just to feed
    their family.

  • America’s farmers and ranchers are committed to producing safe,
    abundant and healthy food each year. One farmer produces
    enough food to feed 155 men, women and children.

  • More than twenty – one million American workers produce,
    process, sell and trade the nation’s food and fiber.
