Farms to Food Banks
While we are going to miss seeing everyone in person at the Know to Grow meetings this spring, with the help of modern technology and a little creative thinking, there are still plenty of virtual methods for lending a hand, or a dollar, to support organizations near and dear to our community. We are currently building a virtual grocery store where you’ll be able to fill a shopping bag with pantry staples. For every bag, Farm Credit Mid-America will donate $25 worth of food to Farms to Food Banks, keeping the donations local to support OH, IN, KY and TN. Check back to this site for pending content (and fun!).
Likewise, Farm Credit Mid-America is harnessing the power of social media to drive virtual donations. Post the hashtag #KnowToGrow21 across all your social media platforms – it might be on a story about your farm, or a selfie of you joining our virtual conference or even a picture of you and your family supporting a community cause! Farm Credit Mid-America will donate $5.00 per hashtag post to local food banks. Spread the word and share a story - the more you use the hashtag, the more money we raise. Check back to this page to see our progress! #KnowToGrow21
We’ve set a fundraising goal of $10,000, and we know with your support, it will be met. Even though we can't be together, all of us at Farm Credit Mid-America are thankful for your virtual help in supporting Farms to Food Banks in Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee!
