Project Description

Food insecurity is immoral, unacceptable, and beatable. A vision of a better tomorrow fuels us today.

Listen in as Dr. Phil Knight and Gerry Brisson host Ernie Birchmeier, the manager of the Center for Commodity Farm and Industry Relations at the Michigan Farm Bureau. Tonight on Food First Ernie paints a picture of the hardship that Michigan farmers are facing due to the rainy spring and hot, dry midsummer. Learn tonight about the ripple effect crop shortages have through the food supply chain and how pending trade agreements could impact Michigan farmers. The Food Bank Council of Michigan is proud to have a strong partnership with Michigan Farm Bureau.
