New York Farm Bureau Wins Second Place for Donating the Most Food for the "Harvest for All" Program
The New York Farm Bureau was one of the many farms and ranch families across the country who were able to donate 36.4 million pounds of food and raised more than $258,000 to help fight hunger in 2021 through the Farm Bureau’s “Harvest for All” program. The money and food donations were equal to 30.5 million meals.
There were three second-place winners. New York Farm Bureau won for 5.7 million pounds of food donated, the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau for $47,154 in donated funds, and the Illinois Farm Bureau for 4,063 hours of donated volunteer time.
Each second-place winner received a $250 grant (for each type of contribution) from Nationwide. With that, they can donate to the local food bank of their choice.
“Coping with hunger is a daily reality for people from all walks of life, including many residents of rural areas and farming communities,” said Alisha Schwertner of Texas, chair of AFBF’s YF&R Committee. “Through Harvest for All, Farm Bureau remains committed to putting food on the tables of those in need.”
