Farm to Family outreach Program Expands

Published Mar. 13, 2014 | Discuss this article on Facebook

Marion County Farm Bureau used Harvest Hustle funds to publish a cookbook and provide cooking demonstrations to the public.  The first two programs were held in October and Novenber. Participants attended a live cooking demonstration and were given a starter kit of the ingredients for an affordable and nutritious meal along with the cookbook.  Both events were a huge success. 

Building on these successes, the Facebook page was launched.  There are posts of affordable, yet nutritious recipes and sharing of updates of our outreach program.  We hope to do a monthly cooking demonstration at different Marion area charities and food pantries.

 Catch a demonstration at our Farmers' CARE Breakfast on March 22 at Tri-Rivers Career Center.
