You may already be aware of the numerous food pantries located in our county, but did you know the Love Center alone helps over 450 families? That translates into over 250,000 pounds of food just so far this year. The money used to purchase that food is 100% donated. Over the last five years, Holmes County Farm Bureau has presented Harvest for Hunger, a dinner fundraiser which has raised over $50,000 to support the food pantries in Holmes County.
On Sept. 24, 2022 the Holmes County Farm Bureau will proudly present the sixth annual Harvest for Hunger, an elegant and unique benefit dinner, hosted at the John Miller Family Farm. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the Love Center, who will help us disperse those funds to other food pantries in our county. The second goal of this event is to entertain our guests with amazing food and help promote the connection of food to agriculture in Holmes County. A live auction will follow dinner, with those proceeds being donated to the local food pantries as well.
As an integral part of the community, we are reaching out in the hopes that you can help us make this event a success. We are asking you to help sponsor the event with a monetary donation or item that can be auctioned to support the pantries. All sponsors will be recognized the night of the event.
Bronze Level: $150-$550 (Program recognition)
Silver Level: $600 (Program recognition and 2 complimentary event tickets)
Gold Level: $1000 (Program recognition, 2 complimentary event tickets, plus a space to display a large sign at the event)

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.Farm Labor Resources
