Food Check-Out Day: To recognize the outstanding efficiency and productivity of America’s farmers and ranchers, the Montana Farm Bureau Federation Women’s Committee officially commemorates Food Check-Out each year. Food Check-Out Day recognizes the farmer’s contribution to the affordability of food in the United States. The event is held annually by MT farm women on the day of the year, when, on average, Americans have earned enough income to pay for their yearly food supply. Montana Farm Bureau celebrates Food Checkout Day by gathering food and food certificates for the Ronald McDonald House in Billings.
