Minnesota Farm Bureau Supports Loaves and Fishes

Nearly 200 Farm Bureau members from across the state attended the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation (MFBF) LEAP Conference led by the MFBF Young Farmers & Ranchers (YF&R) Committee and MFBF Promotion & Education (P&E) Committee. This was held January 25-26 at the Radisson Blu in Bloomington.

During the conference, attendees conducted a service project for Loaves and Fishes Farm for All project. Loaves and Fishes is a Minnesota- based nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve free, nutritious meals to people in need at locations where the need is greatest, and Farm for All is a farm-to-table approach to serving people in need.

A variety of gardening tools and supplies were donated by attendees to support this effort. In addition, through the Minnesota Farm Bureau Foundation, those attending raised $1,860 for gardening tools and supplies.
