GFB makes $50,000 donation to Georgia Food Bank Association
On April 21, Georgia Farm Bureau announced a $50,000 gift to the Georgia Food Bank Association, which represents seven regional food banks across the state.
“Georgia Farm Bureau has a long-standing partnership with the Food Bank Association. We believe that it is appropriate to help all Georgia communities during these difficult economic times. It is our hope this gift provides much needed relief to the people in need,” said GFB President Gerald Long.
The $50,000 donation will be distributed equally among the food banks in Georgia during the COVID-19 crisis.
“There has never been a more critical time to support the food bank network,” said Georgia Food Bank Association Executive Director Danah Craft. “We have seen a sustained, 30% to 40% increase in need, and we know that the food we distribute every day would not be possible without hard-working farming families. We are grateful for Georgia Farm Bureau's compassion and for our long-standing partnership, together with their members, to end hunger in Georgia.”
