Through Operation Main Street, more than 1,300 enthusiastic farmers, veterinarians and other volunteers are dedicated to telling the pork industry’s story of innovation, sustainability and animal stewardship. Most recently, this connected me with the Hollywood Rotary Club, where there was plenty of questions and open discussion about pig farming.
On summer evenings, the go-to at our home is to fire up the grill. In fact, we are one of THOSE families that grills during all four seasons. While cooking outside may feel more laid back, we cannot relax our focus on food safety precautions. Great care is taken to keep our food supply safe and the final, critical step involves following proper guidelines while preparing food at home.
Ever since returning from a mission trip to Honduras in February, my morning routine isn’t quite the same. Simple moments like turning on the bathroom faucet to brush my teeth and heading to the fridge to whip up some breakfast are now daily, poignant reminders of how fortunate my family – and how fortunate most of us are – to enjoy the luxuries of clean water and healthy, safe, accessible food.
