HCFB seeks support for local food pantries

For the past three years, the Holmes County Farm Bureau has hosted Harvest for Hunger and through that event has raised over $30,000 for the food pantries in Holmes County. While Farm Bureau is unable to have an event of that magnitude this year, the food pantries in Holmes County need help more this year than ever before.

Leading up to and including the evening of the county Farm Bureau Annual Meeting Aug. 27,  donations will be collected from anyone wanting to support the Holmes County food pantries. Following the annual meeting, the money will be distributed on behalf of Holmes County Farm Bureau.

The Holmes County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees has committed to supporting the community by donating the money typically used to host Harvest for Hunger and the annual meeting to start this initiative. The board has already committed $3,000 which includes 250 pounds of pork.

Please join these efforts to support the food pantries in Holmes County in their time of need. Donations can be made by cash or check made payable to Holmes County Farm Bureau with the memo “Annual Meeting donation” and mailed to 377 W. Liberty St., Wooster, OH 44691. Credit card donations can be made by calling the Farm Bureau office at 330-263-7456.
