Shopping for Ronald McDonald House
Sedgwick County Farm Bureau has organized an event where we invite surrounding county Farm Bureau’s to join with us to shop for food to stock the shelves of the two Ronald McDonald House and one Family Room. This year we purchased $2,200 worth of food.
For the last four years we have organized a farm tour for the Sedgwick County Legislators. This was an opportunity to show them what we do and how important agriculture is to the economy in Sedgwick County.
Day at the State House
Farm Bureau members from across the state ascend on Topeka to meet with our Legislators. While there they attend hearings and House and Senate sessions. This event gives the farmers and ranchers, in our state, the opportunity to observe the legislative process, connect with their legislators and see firsthand how important their input is to the political development.
