In today's society we never seem to have enough time. People are busier than ever before due to work, family, or a combination of both. As this trend grows, there is a change in household food purchases. People are spending more on convenience than they did in the past. More of our food dollar is shifting to purchases away from home than at home. Families are spending less at the groceries stores to prepare food at home and spending more money on meals away from the home. This poster will illustrate how this trend has effected the growers price received at the farm. Through historical data, we will also see how much of that dollar is going back to the farmer today compared to past years.
