The American Farm Bureau, lead by the Young Farmers & Ranchers program, raised more than $1.1 million and donate more than 28.9 million pounds of food for hungry Americans in 2016. The “Harvest for All” program is now in its 15th year and has fed more than 31 million meals, thanks to the efforts of farmers and ranchers.
“Farm Bureau has a long tradition of helping provide nourishment for those who need it the most,” said Kalena Bruce, a cattle farmer from Missouri who chairs AFBF’s national YF&R committee. “More than 50 percent of Americans struggling with hunger live in rural areas and farming communities. We’re pleased to help families in our communities who are in need.”
