The West Polk County Farm Bureau on Wednesday presented a check to North Country Food Bank Executive Director Susie Novak that will provide 10,000 more meals to area individuals and families in need.
The donation comes in conjunction with the Minnesota Farm Bureau’s Food Awareness Month in February, and also to kick off Minnesota Food Share Month in March.
Along with the donation, Crookston Mayor Gary Willhite also proclaimed Feb. 25 “Take Action Against Hunger Day” and encouraged others to accept the West Polk Farm Bureau’s challenge to support NCFB.
