DeWitt County Farm Bureau Young Leaders Boost Local Food Banks

Two DeWitt County food banks were recently the beneficiaries of a substantial donation from the DeWitt County Farm Bureau Young Leaders.


Allison Reinecke, Farm Bureau Manager, indicates their young leader group donated $600, split between the Clinton First Church of the Nazarene and Farmer City's Salt Creek Parish Resource Center...



The group consists of Farm Bureau members ages 18-35 that have an interest in agriculture.  Reinecke notes the funds were partially raised as part of the group's Apple & Pork Festival activities...



The Young Leaders group counts anti-hunger programs among its many roles in the county; others include agriculture promotion, leadership development, and agriculture education for both the community and youth.


For more information about Young Leaders and future food pantry collections, please call the DeWitt County Farm Bureau office at 217-935-2126.
