Minnesota Farm Bureau Supports Hope House of Bemidji

Over 225 Farm Bureau members from across the state attended the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Leadership Conference led by the MFBF Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee and MFBF Promotion & Education (P&E) Committee. This was held February 3-4 at the Sanford Convention Center in Bemidji.

During the conference, attendees conducted a service project for the Hope House of Bemidji by bringing in needed supplies for the house. The Minnesota Farm Bureau (MFB) Foundation also donated food and household supplies along with a monetary donation of $1,000.

Farm Bureau members also raised over $2,100 for a hunger service project in the upcoming year. Throughout the year, farmers and ranchers across the nation donate food, funds and people power to create a hunger-free America.

The MFBF conducts Food Awareness activities primarily in February and March. Part of the county Farm Bureau activities include initiatives with local food shelves.
