Young farmers and ranchers donate $8300 to the Montana Food Bank Network
The Montana Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) Committee presented a check for $8300 to the Montana Food Bank Network (MFBN) at the MFBF YF&R luncheon Tuesday, November 12 in Billings.
“We are so thankful for the relationship we have with Montana Farm Bureau Federation. The Hoofin’ it for Hunger event has raised more than $58,000 for the Montana Food Bank Network. That amount equates to 174,000 meals provided for children, seniors and families in Montana,” said Tonya Dvarishkis, board member, Montana Food Bank Network who accepted the donation. The Missoula-based Montana Food Bank Network secures and distributes donated and low-cost food to nearly 150 hunger relief agencies throughout Montana. “The Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers decided years ago that helping to end hunger in Montana was important to them and they have never wavered in their efforts to give back their time and funding to this important cause. We are very appreciative.”
