Tennessee Farmers battle Hunger at Milan No-Till Field Day
The University of Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center is extending it’s efforts to eradicating hunger from surrounding communities. At the Milan No-Till Field Day, farmers presented with various management practices as well as tips to improve food security. An effort titled “Farmers vs. Hunger” was featured at the field day program in which volunteers assembled and packaged thousands of meals for local food banks. The meals were packed with soy protein and vitamins for increased nutritional value. This year’s No-Till Field Day prepared over 28,000 meals for the community.
