Each year a portion of the proceeds of the Farm Dinners goes to support organizations doing good things in our local community. In 2013 we're committed to doing our part to eradicate hunger in Oregon by focusing our efforts on supporting one amazing group - Farmers Ending Hunger. Read more about them, and please join us.
Farmers Ending Hunger
Eastern Oregon resident Fred Ziari created the nonprofit Farmers Ending Hunger in 2004 when he learned that Oregon was one of the hungriest states in the country. Farmers Ending Hunger gathers Oregon's agricultural resources to help feed the hungry. Local family farmers, ranchers and growers donate a portion of the food crops they raise, and Adopt-an-Acre, a supplementary program seeks the operating funds necessary to harvest and process those same crops into frozen and canned food products that are easily stored and utilized, then distribute them to the hungry through Oregon Food Bank's regional network. For information on how to contribute to Adopt-an-Acre, please visit farmersendinghunger.com or call 503-931-9232.
