Texas Tech Students to Celebrate National Food Day

Animal Agriculture Alliance helps the public better understand modern animal agriculture’s importance to quality of life.

Texas Tech University’s Block and Bridle Club will celebrate National Food Day on Oct. 24 at Market Street on 50th Street and Indiana Avenue from 3-7 p.m.

The club members said they hope to explain real agriculture production practices and share their experiences growing up on farms and ranches with local consumers.

“Texas Tech Block and Bridle members will be handing out brochures, free food samples and recipe ideas,” said Emily Jackson, the event organizer and member of the club. “Students will be representing facets of the beef, swine and sheep industries.”

National Food Day is organized by the Animal Agriculture Alliance, a national non-profit organization that helps the public better understand modern animal agriculture’s importance to quality of life.
