Collegiate Farm Bureau at Ohio State

The 2021 Ohio State Collegiate Farm Bureau Food Fund Off is set for this week leading up to the matchup between Ohio State and Michigan State in the Horseshoe. Chapters from Collegiate Farm Bureaus from both schools will go head-to-head to see which one can raise the most funds for Feeding America.

“In October of last year, we were looking to create a philanthropy event that really makes an impact but also crosses university lines with some friendly competition,” said Ohio State Collegiate Farm Bureau President Tyler Zimpfer. “When we decided to help out Feeding America, we knew we also wanted this event to be around Thanksgiving, when the thought of having a family meal is prevalent.”

The campaign officially launched on Sunday and will continue until the end of the Ohio State-Michigan State game on Saturday, and any and all Ohio Farm Bureau members and Buckeye fans are invited to participate. To take part, visit and select Ohio State Buckeyes. Updates on which Collegiate Farm Bureau is leading will be posted daily through the Ohio State Collegiate Farm Bureau social media on Facebook and Instagram with #FoodFundOff.

Last year, the two chapters raised over $2,500 and provided more than 25,000 meals with Ohio State edging out Michigan State for the championship. Do your part to donate to a great cause and keep the trophy in the Buckeye State!

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.
