Bringing Conversations About Food and Farming to the Kansas State Fair

LaVell Winsor

LaVell Winsor, CommonGround Kansas volunteer, visits with guests at the Sept. 13 Conversations About Food and Farming dinner at the Kansas State Fair.

While the Kansas State Fair is often known for its educational exhibits, carnival rides, concerts and creative cuisine, CommonGround Kansas volunteers brought the element of conversation to the fairgrounds on Sept. 13.

During the “Conversations About Food and Farming” dinner, CommonGround Kansas volunteers met with school administrators, nutrition directors, community leaders and commodity representatives. The group engaged in discussion about how farmers care for their animals and the environment, feeding the growing world population, how farming helps address school nutrition concerns and many other topics.

Thanks to all who attended for an evening of great company and conversation!
