Am I paying too much for food for my family?
Do I need to buy the most expensive food to get the best for my family?
Why do food prices go up at times?
These are all questions that you might have about your food. One myth about food prices is that farmers are getting richer from rising food costs.
This diagram shows that is simply not true. For every dollar spent on food in America, farmers see less than 12 cents. We hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving season and can remember that Americans have the safest, most affordable and abundant food supply in the world!
