On the morning of March 18, at Tri-Rivers Career Center in Marion, approximately 900 people enjoyed a breakfast of pancakes, sausage, eggs, milk, orange juice and coffee for a cash donation or a nonperishable food item donation, which was distributed to a local food pantry.

The breakfast forges a partnership between farmers and consumers.

Farmers receive approximately 50 cents for the food items in the breakfast.
