North Dakota Farmers Share the Harvest

March 17, 2009

Fargo, ND – North Dakota farmers and ranchers have fared better than most during this economic downturn, so they are giving back to the community by shoring up local food banks with Wednesday's "Sharing the Harvest" event across the state.

Amber Hill with the North Dakota Farmers Union says that on March 18, at 50 locations statewide, money and non-perishable food will be collected and donated to local food banks, and North Dakota citizens will get low-cost or free meals.

"We'll have a meal where people can pay five dollars, or they can bring in a non-perishable food item for this event, one each with a dollar price on it. They could bring five items in and then eat for free."

Hill says the event is being held in almost every county in North Dakota.

"Some of them are even having two in a county just to help give back to their community, and so there should be one near almost everyone in the state. "

Hill says the North Dakota Farmers Union has celebrated this Agriculture Week in a variety of ways in past years - but she says sponsoring the "Sharing the Harvest" meals to strengthen local food banks was the best way for North Dakota farmers and ranchers to contribute to the community. Those food banks now report seeing a greater demand for their services.
