In honor of Farm-City Week, members of the Bureau County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee donated enough food to feed 155 people Thanksgiving dinner. This is representative of how many people one farmer feeds each year. The donation consists of 22 turkeys, 30 cans of sweet potatoes, 26 cans of cranberry sauce, 20 boxes of instant potatoes, 26 packages of stuffing, 44 cans of green beans, 12 packages of rolls, 30 jars of applesauce, 15 boxes of cake mix and 15 cans of frosting. The donation was delivered to the food pantry in Princeton Nov. 18 by Kathy Olson (left), Nelda Marcum, Vanessa Hoffeditz, Karlie Schultz, Beth Schultz and Bev Read.
