Marion County Farm Bureau solicits donations to local foodbank

Foodbanks across Central Ohio are seeing a nearly 40% increase in food distributed since the COVID-19 pandemic reached Ohio. This pandemic has brought many first-time families to visit foodbanks, and as the COVID-19 pandemic lingers, the need for foodbank donations is greater than ever.

You know well that farmers care that all people in their community have access to safe and nutritious food. In lieu of this year’s Farmers CARE Breakfast, Marion County Farm Bureau is asking its members to make a donation to the local foodbanks in Marion County. All donations collected will be evenly distributed to eight Marion County foodbanks. The Marion County Farm Bureau made a donation in December 2020 and will match the donations from members up to $1000.

To make a donation, please send a check to Marion County Farm Bureau at 1495 W. Longview Ave., Suite 203, Mansfield, OH 44906. In the memo line, please put food bank donation. Donations will be collected through June 1.

While we are disappointed to cancel the Farmers CARE Breakfast another year, we are grateful to be able to impact our communities. Thank you for ensuring all of our neighbors have food on their table.

If you have any questions, please contact the Marion County Farm Bureau at 419-747-7488 or [email protected].
