Lifetime TV welcomes CommonGround Colorado volunteer Kelsey Pope to its morning program The Balancing Act this Friday to further an ongoing conversation between the American moms on and off of the farm. Pope will answer questions and address concerns about how she, and ranchers like her, care for livestock using tools such antibiotics.


This is the second piece of a two-segment mini-series in which The Balancing Act features conversations with volunteers from CommonGround, an effort designed to get women talking about farming and food. It builds upon a previous four-part series that ran in the winter of 2014. 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. 


“I understand why moms have questions about what they feed their families, because I care about what I feed my family too. 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,” says Pope.


Catch the entire segment at 6:30 a.m. Central Friday, May 15, on Lifetime.


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 fifth year, CommonGround brings more than 140 of America’s farm women to the table for food discussions and helps consumers eat fearlessly.
