Bushels for Hunger

Miami County Farmers are no strangers to showing kindness to their community.  On May 2, Miami County Farm Bureau was able to present donation checks to Greene Street United Methodist Church, the Bradford Resource Center, Health Partners Free Clinic, and the Covington Outreach Association as a part of the Bushels for Hunger program.

Farm Bureau president Bill Wilkins said the Bushels for Hunger program has been going on in Miami County for nine years thanks to the generosity of local farmers. Farmers give of their land, their time, and their crops to support the program. This year Farm Bureau was able to present over $4000 to these organizations.

During harvest season, farmers are able to donate bushels at the Troy Elevator and also at Rudy Inc. elevators in Covington and West Milton. After harvest is over, the program donates the price per bushel to the designated organizations.
