We are often hungry “right this very minute” throughout the day for breakfast, or lunch, or a snack.  But do you we ever think about what farmers are doing  “right this very minute” to ensure we have safe, nutritious and delicious foods when we want them?  Right This Very Minute connects the foods we find ourselves wanting during the course of a day to the work farmers are doing everyday to grow, raise and produce our food.
