Local Farm Bureau Effort Continues To Aid Local Foodbank

Another successful Bushels for Hunger campaign.  The joint effort between the Mercer, Rock Island, Henry and Whiteside County Farm Bureaus netted just under $24,000 this year for the River Bend Foodbank in Davenport.  A check presentation was held yesterday.  Jeff Kirwan is a Mercer County farmer and Illinois Farm Bureau board member.

Mike Miller serves as executive director of the River Bend Foodbank.

The River Bend Foodbank serves 22-counties in eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
