In an effort to address the surging community food bank need due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the economy, Farm Bureaus in Carroll, Holmes, Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne counties collaborated in a Pork to Pantry project which resulted in 5,160 pounds of ground pork being donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

Additional sponsors included Farm Credit Mid-America, Ohio Pork Council’s Pork Power Program, Deerfield Ag Services, Trent Insurance Group, Dennis Taylor Agency, Dustin Burgess Insurance Group and Kim Davis Agency. The pork was delivered Aug. 5 and will be distributed through the food bank system. 

Farm Bureau is an incredible organization that has given me countless professional development opportunities in addition to advocating for all sizes and types of farmers.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.

We go to a lot of Farm Bureau events, and there’s a lot of camaraderie built because you’re meeting with people who have similar interests and goals.
