On Wednesday, March 27, 2013 hams and additional food items donated by Watonwan County Farm Bureau were carefully packed for 53 Watonwan County Food Shelf Easter Baskets to feed 176 individuals by Deb Schmillen, head of the county Food Shelf and volunteers.
“Donations help us complete these Food Baskets without depleting our Food Shelf supplies,” said Deb. “It is a tremendous assistance to receive this donation now.”
“These hams and food items are promoting Watonwan Farmers CARE – Animals – Environment – Food – Family. Watonwan County Farm Bureau wants the consumer to know that their food was raised safely and wholesomely through Watonwan County Farm Bureau’s 2013 Ag Promotion Program,” stated Matt Wolle, Watonwan County Farm Bureau Director. “Food safety promotional items from Minnesota Pork Producers were also included in each basket.”
Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation’s Ag Promotion Program is made possible by a generous donation from the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council and Minnesota Pork Producer’s Association.
