Farm Bureau Continues Tradition of Giving Back to Hungry Americans


The farm and ranch families of Farm Bureau donated 26.3 million pounds of food and raised more than $494,000 to assist hungry Americans in 2019 as part of the organization’s “Harvest for All” program.

In addition to raising money and donating food, farmers and ranchers volunteered more than 14,000 hours to assist local hunger groups in 2019.

“Hunger remains a concern for many rural Americans and farming communities,” said Morgan Norris of Florida, chair of AFBF’s YF&R Committee. “Farm Bureau’s long tradition of helping put food on the tables of those in need through Harvest for All outreach is more important than ever as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.”

The Florida Farm Bureau donated the most food, totaling 18 million pounds. Illinois Farm Bureau raised the most money, $205,900 and had the most hours volunteered.
