On Tuesday, October 9, the Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) Foundation held a meeting for leaders in the southeastern counties of the state to discuss the opioid crisis. During the meeting, attendees shared resources, heard legislative updates and had a roundtable discussion on this crisis in rural America.
As farming communities face mounting challenges with the nation’s opioid epidemic, the nation’s two largest general farm organizations, the American Farm Bureau Federation and the National Farmers Union, created a campaign to bring attention to the struggles in farm country and encourage farmer-to-farmer support to overcome the opioid epidemic. This campaign is called Farm Town Strong. Learn more and find resources to address this issue at FarmTownStrong.org.
