Delaware County Farm Bureau raises $38,000 to fight hunger

Delaware County Farm Bureau is proud to announce that the 3rd Annual Benefit in the Barn, a symphony on the farm, raised a total of $38,000 to help fight hunger. Over 700 people came out to support this worthy cause and enjoyed a wonderful evening of delicious food and music by the Central Ohio Symphony. All ticket sales
and net proceeds donated went to directly support central Ohio hunger programs and feed hungry neighbors in the community.

Delaware County Farm Bureau is committed to working with community partners to alleviate food insecurity and highlighting the needs of those who struggle getting enough to eat. Food insecurity is a problem in both rural and urban communities and affected families often rely on food pantries and hunger programs to help put food on the table. Through a key partnership with the United Way of Delaware County, this event is able to have an overwhelmingly positive impact for many at-risk families.

Delaware County Farm Bureau wishes to thank Doug and Cathy Dawson who graciously hosted the event. Thanks are extended to the many sponsors, volunteers and those who purchased tickets and who were in attendance. Through the support of City BBQ, the Delaware County Foundation and Performance Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, the Delaware County Farm Bureau was able to donate all net proceeds to the Hunger Alliance of Delaware County.

This year’s event will be held Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018 at the beautiful farm of Jim Rodman, located at 5530 Radnor Road in Radnor. In addition to the Central Ohio Symphony, the Delaware Hayes Symphonic Chorus will also be performing. More information will be available in the coming months.
