CommonGround Celebrates This Kind of Love This Mother's Day

(Posted Fri. May 6th, 2016)

Today, CommonGround launched a Mother’s Day tribute celebrating both the moms who grow food and those who buy it. Featuring CommonGround volunteers and their families, this video highlights the kind of love that goes into raising a family – and the food that our families eat.

CommonGround is a joint program of the National Corn Growers Association, the United Soybean Board and their state affiliates. Through the work of farm women volunteers, CommonGround connects women on and off the farm for conversations about how food is grown and raised so that everyone can enjoy food without the fear.


Since it launched in November of 2010, CommonGround has made more than 675 million consumer conversations. With 184 volunteers, CommonGround state affiliates host an activity somewhere in the country almost every other day.


The program focuses on nine areas of interest to consumers including: farm ownership; GMOs; food safety; antibiotics and animal health; hormones in meat and milk; organic and local foods; food prices; and sustainability, which was added as a topic just this year.
