Thursday was National Food Day. 

And to help connect consumers with producers members of the Texas Tech Block and Bridle Club were cooking up some great snacks at Market Street on 50th Street and Indiana. 

They were also dishing out information about food production agriculture and helping shoppers learn about the journey their food travels from farm to the grocery store and eventually to their tables. 

"Farmers and ranchers make up two to three percent of today's population and so the majority of Americans are three generations removed from the family farm," Emily Jackson, a Block and Bridle Member, said. "So knowing that's our background and we are the ones that produce your food, we love to answer questions for people that maybe don't know as much or maybe do have questions." 

The Block and Bridle Club was supported by the Texas Pork Producers and Texas Beef Council in their efforts on National Food Day.
