Harvest for All
Harvestor for All Mission
The American Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmer & Ranchers are working with Feeding America to help feed the millions of Americans who face hunger through the Harvest for All program.
Throughout the year, farmers across the nation will be donating food, funds and people power to create a hunger-free America. And whether the contribution is a bushel - a dollar - or an hour, Farm Bureau and Feeding America, in partnership with Syngenta, will be working together to finish an important job - making sure every American can enjoy the bounty produced on our farms and ranches.
As you work diligently to promote Farm Bureau programs in your county, please consider helping folks who need and appreciate the safe, wholesome food from your county’s farmers and ranchers. By collecting food items, monetary contributions and volunteer hours worked towards the KFB YF&R Harvest for All program you are contributing towards helping end hunger in our country. Thank you for implementing Harvest for All activities in your county.
