Farm Bureau’s young farmers and ranchers have worked side by side with Feeding America for the past 10 years to help provide food to those in need around our country through the Harvest for All campaign. More than 50 million Americans – that’s 1 in 6 – including nearly 17 million children, are food insecure, meaning they live at risk of hunger.
In 2014, YF&R programs across the country donated a total of 42 million pounds of food, spent 14,000 hours volunteering, and donated 1.2 million dollars to their local food banks.
The Harvest for All campaign includes activities organized by state and county Farm Bureaus in a connection with local Feeding America affiliates across the country. Through the campaign's 10-year history, YF&R programs across the country have donated their food, money, and their time to provide more than 83 million meal equivalents to hungry Americans.
