During the meeting, attendees conducted a service project for Second Harvest Heartland with 25 volunteers packing 13,701 pounds of apples and squash and assisted with labeling.
The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation also presented a donation to Second Harvest Heartland for $3,300. The funds were raised during the 2015 MFBF Leadership Conference by participants who held an auction and a district challenge to “Feed the Pig (piggy bank).”
Throughout the year, farmers and ranchers across the nation donate food, funds and people power to create a hunger-free America.
The Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation mission is to provide opportunities for supporters of agriculture to invest in people and programs focused on supporting active farmers and agriculturalists, better connecting agriculture to consumers and serving rural communities. The MFB Foundation is a 501(c)3 foundation. Donations are tax deductible.
