Coshocton County Farm Bureau

During the 5th annual Breakfast on the Farm, community members contributed over 10,000 pounds of food and more than $1,600 in donations to support a local food pantry- all in the name of a little friendly competition.

Coshocton County Farm Bureau challenged each of the three FFA Chapters in Coshocton County to raise the most food and donations for the Shepherd’s Christian Assembly. The winning chapter would receive a pizza party for the entire chapter. Local Ford dealership Jeff Drennen Ford, took the challenge to the next level and placed trucks in their service bay for the community to contribute donations as well.

At the end of the event, the Coshocton County community had donated seven truckloads of food to the pantry. River View FFA won the FFA Food Fight with 5,790 pounds of food and $338. Ridgewood took a close second with 4,260 pounds of food and $1,196. The Career Center brought in 260 pounds of food and $100. The school districts supported the FFA Chapters with elementary food drive contests and district OneCalls.

Coshocton County Farm Bureau volunteers and local leaders served made to order omelets to the 125 guests in attendance at Lapp Farms. During the breakfast event, Ridgewood FFA hosted a pedal tractor pull. Following the event, Muskingum Area Mental Health & Recovery Services Board presented information about mental health.

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.
