|Subject:||Thank a Local Farmer Week Resolution|
|In the near future, I will be introducing a resolution recognizing September 19-25, 2020 as “Thank a Local Farmer Week” in Pennsylvania.
Farms located within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania offer an abundance of fresh, wholesome food, and play in important role in not only selling locally to their neighbors, but on a regional and even global basis. They have filled a uniquely vital role during times of market disruption and economic volatility.
The economic success of farmers and farms in Pennsylvania is a key factor in maintaining the strength of local and regional economies. Farmers are fundamental to making local, healthy, fresh foods available to all Pennsylvanians.
Strong relationships between farmers and their customers result in a better life for everyone involved. This is why I am introducing this resolution designating September 19-25, 2020 as “Thank a Local Farmer Week” in Pennsylvania. I encourage you to join me by signing on as a cosponsor.
