Nov. 21: Popular morning show The Balancing Act airing on Lifetime TV welcomes CommonGround, a grassroots organization designed to get women talking about farming, to the show at 6 a.m. CST Monday, Nov. 25. Make sure to tune in as CommonGround Kentucky volunteer Mary Courtney explains why consumers do not have to spend more to get the best food for their families.
This is the first of a four-segment mini-series where The Balancing Act will feature conversations with volunteers from CommonGround, an effort designed to get women talking about farming and food. CommonGround provides a way for moms looking for answers about food to connect with moms who grow and raise it and get real, credible information.
“The Balancing Act provides a great forum to connect with moms across the country and let them know that farmers just like me want to share the story behind how American food is grown and raised,” said Courtney.

This special opportunity to reach millions of the women who make a vast majority of America’s grocery purchasing decisions came to fruition through the special support of NCGA, and was spearheaded by the association’s Trade Policy and Biotechnology Action Team. The Balancing Act empowers women in all aspects of their lives, striving to help today’s modern women balance it all by bringing them exceptional solutions to everyday problems. Working together, CommonGround and The Balancing Act will provide both immediate information and an ongoing resource for women with questions about the food they feed their families.
CommonGround was founded by the National Corn Growers Association, the United Soybean Board and their state affiliates to start a conversation about food between the women who grow it and the women who buy it. Now in its fourth year, CommonGround brings more than 100 of America’s farm women to the table for food discussions and helps consumers eat fearlessly.
