Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s Promotion and Education Committee hosted a food and supply drive at this year’s WFBF Annual Meeting and YFA Conference. The items collected were donated to food banks across the state.
The committee collected more than 3,000 items. Some of the most popular donated items were diapers and wipes, peanut butter, toothbrushes and toothpaste and canned fruit and vegetables.
“It was so rewarding to see the committee organize this event and have Farm Bureau members from across the state come together to support families in need this holiday season,” said WFBF’s Director of Member Relations Mandy Masters.
The donated items were distributed through the following food banks and pantries Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin, Feed My People, Feeding America, Waushara County Commodity Food Pantry, Jackson County Food Pantry and New Horizons.
Monetary donations were also collected to support the food and supply drive.
