Check Out Day. Farm Bureau members on Thursday were at Hy-Vee, 3504
Clinton Parkway, giving away bread and buying about $200 worth of
groceries for selected individuals. The U.S. Agriculture Department
estimated that by Thursday the average American had earned enough
in 2003 to pay for their entire family's annual food supply. The
department estimated an average family spends 10 percent of its
disposable income on food.
