The LLCC Agriculture Club is holding a Farmer’s Share Luncheon on Today, March 28 from 11:30am to 1:00pm in the Student Union. The purpose of the meal is to educate students, staff, and faculty about modern agriculture and dispel any myths about the agricultural field. The cost of a ticket is $.50, which represents the amount an average farmer receives out of the $6.00 a person would spend on eating that meal at a restaurant or other establishment. The remainder of the meal cost is being paid by the area agribusinesses that are sponsoring the event. Some tickets are still available, so faculty and staff are welcome to come and pay at the event while supplied last. Door prizes will be awarded, and Ag Club raffle tickets will be on sale as well.
