9 a.m. – Rick McNary, the founder of Shop Kansas Farms, is a writer, photographer, speaker, humanitarian, and a consultant for communities starting local food systems. He has been involved in international hunger relief and development for more than 20 years after a starving girl in Nicaragua asked him to feed her.

Shop Kansas Farms connects people to the farm and ranch families of Kansas so they can purchase local foods. This urban-rural connection happens through Facebook, a website, events, and communication with communities.
