With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the thought about what you are going to get that special someone is on your mind as well as planning that special dinner. Whether you’re dining out or cooking a meal at home, you may see many different food terms in menus and in the grocery store.

When you’re scanning a restaurant menu or walking the grocery store aisles, do you know what many of the food terms really mean? What’s “local,” and what’s the difference between organic and non-organic? These terms and others are becoming staples on menus and in stores – and, until now, few have been clearly defined.

Our second class of Faces of Farming & Ranching is ready to help you learn more about your food choices and where your food comes from. Erin Brenneman (@sowmomma), Thomas Titus (@1Thomas_Titus), Jay Hill (@HillJay45), and Carla Wardin (@carlashelley) are family farmers who want to help you understand how your food is grown and raised. Ask questions, learn about the most common food terms, and maybe gather some good side dinner table conversation ideas!

We hope to see you at the #FoodD Twitter chat this Thursday, February 12 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. Central. Use #FoodD on Twitter to join the conversation or just follow the conversation along!
