The Bushels for Hunger program has been around Miami County since 2008, and has supported local Miami County food pantries. During harvest when the farmer takes their grain to Troy Elevator, they are asked if they would like to donate bushels of beans, wheat or corn to the Bushels for Hunger program. Each year we have had an astounding amount of generosity from our local farmers.
On May 26, Miami County Farm Bureau delivered the fourth check to the Bethany Center. This year, four pantries were chosen to be the recipients of $1,325.08 each. The recipients were the Bethany Center, St. Pat’s Soup Kitchen, Covington Outreach, and Bradford Outreach.
Miami County Farm Bureau Organization Director Taylor Watkins, said, “We are so grateful to our farmers who have donated, as it provides others in our community an opportunity to be benefited. As this program continues to grow, we want our farmers to know that their generosity does not go unnoticed. We are focusing on filling a need in our community, and we are glad to be the ones doing just that.”
We are proud to support our local food pantries, and hope this program will continue to grow thanks to our generous farmers!
