Fields of Fun: UMN to host Celebrate Ag & Food Day on September 10

By Haleigh Ortmeier-Clarke

UMN Celebrate Ag & Food DayFood, farmers, and football. What more could a UMN fan ask for?

The University of Minnesota is holding Celebrate Ag & Food Day once again this Saturday, September 10  before the 11 am kickoff of Gopher football. The College of Food, Agricultural, and Natural Resource Sciences (CFANS) has invited several student and agriculture groups to share their stories of agriculture, food, and fiber to the thousands of Gopher football fans who will flood campus on Saturday.

We know that it is important to share our stories and traditions, but Celebrate Ag & Food Day provides consumers an opportunity to get their questions answered, straight from the source. The day is dedicated to thanking those hard-working people throughout Minnesota and more who provide us with food on the table.

Did you miss the sweet corn ice-cream at Farmfest? You’re in luck because MCGA is sponsoring FREE sweet corn ice cream for those who visit the tailgate area outside of Mariucci Arena. Maizey may even be stopping by to cheer on the Gophers to a victory.

For a complete list of “Celebrate Ag & Food Day” participants and events, check out this website and the “Celebrate Ag & Food Day” Facebook page.

Who’s ready for some good ‘ol food and football?
