The Franklin County Farm Bureau and Young Leaders are sponsoring their Annual Harvest for All program to provide food to area food pantries. Farmers are being asked to contribute the return of one acre of land to this project or to being canned goods to our office. The proceeds will be shared with area food pantries.
Please help to make this a great year for the Harvest for All by helping to give to those in need. If you have any questions please call the Franklin County Farm Bureau at (618) 435-3616. Or by mailing a check to P O Box 457, Benton, IL 62812.
