Reflections of 2020
The end of the year is often a time for reflection. Looking back on 2020, in spite of the difficult times, there is still much to be grateful for.
In January and February, our Adopted Farmers had their classroom visits. This program features farmers sending monthly videos to over 50 classrooms across South Dakota. In March, 6 of the 9 Pizza Parties we host for 4th grade classrooms for National Ag week had been completed, when things came to a screeching halt.
As the reality of the Covid-19 pandemic settled in, we saw a major disruption in our food supply. We experienced a time like nothing we have known, when grocery store shelves were picked over or even bare and limits placed on products. People began to look at food differently.
Now more than ever, people want to know where their food comes from. In spite of not having in person events, we were still able to connect people to some of the South Dakota farmers who produce their food. We look forward to in-person events in 2021, until then, follow South Dakota Farm Families on Facebook and Instagram.
