National Food Check-Out Day will be held in Logan County on Friday, February 19, 2016. Russellville Priceless IGA and the Russellville Piggly Wiggly are hosting this year’s Food Check-Out Day. Food Check-Out Day is the day set aside by American Farm Bureau to recognize the American farmer for providing us with affordable food. Because of the farmer’s hard work we are able to spend less on food and therefore have more money to spend on other things, which boosts our whole economy and quality of life.
At the Russellville Priceless IGA and the Russellville Piggly Wiggly customers will have the opportunity to estimate the value of a cart of groceries. At each location the customer with the closest estimate to the actual value will receive a $50.00 gift certificate and the runner up will receive a $25.00 gift certificate. These gift certificates are purchased from the Russellville Priceless IGA and the Russellville Wiggly by the Logan County Farm Bureau. Come join Farm Bureau and honor the American farmer on Friday, February 19, 2016 between the hours of 2:00pm and 4:00pm. The gift certificates will be given away at 4:00. Remember it only takes six weeks to earn enough income to purchase food for a year, whereas, it takes over three months to earn enough income to pay taxes. Thank you to all our farm families!
