Farmers from five area counties continue with efforts to help feed those in need in the region.  The Bushels for Hunger program has had great participation from grain producers in Mercer, Henry, Stark, Rock Island and Whiteside Counties, including New Windsor’s Jeff Kirwan.

The River Bend Food Bank, based in Davenport, serves 22 counties in Western Illinois and Eastern Iowa.
