Farm Bureau To Help Pay For Groceries At Kroger February 18

The Washington County Farm Bureau will be working with Kroger’s in Nashville on February 18 to celebrate the American farmer’s role in producing the safest, most abundant food supply in the world.

February 14-20th is “Food Check-Out Week”, and the Marketing Committee of the Farm Bureau will be offering consumers with a break on their grocery bill on the 18th. “Food Check-Out Week” is the time of year when you have earned enough disposable income to purchase all of your food needs for the coming year. To celebrate, the Farm Bureau is offering $5.00 off of every purchase of $50 or more from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on February 18 at Kroger’s in Nashville.

According to the latest statistics compiled by the USDA’s Economic Research Service, American families and individuals currently spend, on average, around 10 percent of their disposable personal income for food. The $5.00 off of your $50 purchase represents that 10 percent.
