Members of the Ford-Iroquois County Farm Bureau recently participated in a Back to School Fair, sponsored in part by their adopted legislator, State Rep. Will Guzzardi (D-Chicago). The County Farm Bureau hosted booth in which they handed out coloring books, Ag Mags, nutritional information and other school related items. Over 450 school children and families from the Logan Square/Belmont-Cragin neighborhoods attended. The Ford-Iroquois County Farm Bureau has been attending this Back to School Fair for several years and enjoy visiting with urban residents, talking to them about agriculture and providing ag-education related materials to the students. They also had the chance to visit with staff from the local city alderman's office as well.

Thank you to the Ford-Iroquois County farmers for attending this event and for your commitment to building relationships with urban lawmakers and residents!
