“If you eat today, thank a farmer. If it’s on your table, thank a trucker”

"If you eat today, thank a farmer. If you eat in peace, thank a veteran” is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“If you ate today, thank a farmer” is a saying from the 1990s.

“If you ate today,thank a #farmer If you ate in peace, thank a #veteran” was posted on Twitter by Brian Coghlin on November 9, 2016. “IF YOU EAT TODAY, THANK A FARMER. IF YOU EAT IN PEACE, THANK A VETERAN. @THE52WEEKGARDEN.COM” is shown on an image on Twitter by Katherine Marcano-Bell on November 11, 2016. “If you’ve eaten today thank a farmer… If you eaten today in peace thank a veteran” was posted on Twitter by Matt W later on November 11, 2016.

“If you eat today, thank a farmer. If it’s on your table, thank a trucker. If you eat in peace, thank a veteran” was posted on Twitter by Andrew T. Webb on March 31, 2017. “If you ate today, thank a farmer.  If it’s on your table, thank a trucker.  If you eat in peace, thank a veteran” was posted on Twitter by Rocha Transportation on September 1, 2017.

9 November 2001, The Baxter Bulletin (Mountain Home, AR), “Tell a veteran thanks” (editorial), pg. 4A, col. 1:
A few years ago, there was a bumper sticker that said, in effect, if you enjoyed your last meal, thank a farmer.

If you enjoyed your freedom, thank a veteran.

22 April 2004, Chatham (ON) Daily News, “Memorial vandalism appalling” by Missi McNaughton, pg. 4: 
I once read a bumper sticker that said “If you ate today, thank a farmer”. I agree wholeheartedly (although that is a letter for a different time). Today, I want to say “If you took a breath today, if you made a decision today, if you woke up in Canada today, if you are FREE today, thank a veteran.”

11 November 2004, Standard-Freeholder (Cornwall, ON), “A time for reflection” by Jim Brownell, pg. 4:
These ceremonies remind us of the supreme sacrifices made by so many, and the tensions that we see daily in the print media and television. These events give us the opportunity to “Thank a Farmer” as we enjoy our daily bread, and “Thank a Veteran” as we enjoy our freedom and democracy.

As we begin a new year, take a moment to remember all we are thankful for. As a gentleman recently shared with me, “If you have eaten today, thank your mom. If you enjoyed fresh food, thank a farmer. If you bought food from a local store, thank a trucker. If you enjoyed your meal in peace, thank a veteran.”
