PRINCETON - In early January, the Bureau County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee and Young Leader Committee donated 485 pounds of food and $754 to the Food Pantry in Princeton. This is in large part to the generous donations from the community. 

Seeing a need for kid related food, the committees launched a month-long food donation drop off at the Farm Bureau office in Princeton. Members of the community came in all month long to drop off their donations.

Feeling appreciative of all the community donations, Farm Bureau completed the donation with a $500 check. Monetary donations generate 10 times the buying power when the food pantry purchases the food.

The committees expressed their appreciation to all members of the community and local businesses who dropped off donations during the month-long food drive and made an impact.
