Farm Bureau Commemorates Food Check-Out Week

LEWISBURG — The Union County Farm Bureau will celebrate Food Check-Out Week from Feb. 17-23, as a means of recognizing that growing and raising wholesome food is a farmer’s top goal, and that Americans enjoy a food supply that is among the safest, most abundant and most affordable in the world. Our farmers provide the highest quality, healthiest food possible. Pennsylvania farmers are committed to producing safe, abundant and healthy food and the Farm Bureau is helping consumers find solutions to eating healthy on a stretched budget. Food check-Out Week will be observed through a charitable donation of food and money and other needed items for Pennsylvania’s six Ronald McDonald Houses in Pennsylvania. In Union and surrounding counties, the Farm Bureau is proposing donations to the Ronald McDonald House in Danville.

A contribution of food or funds to the event can be made by contacting Susan Hauck at 966-3760. The donated items will be presented to the Ronald McDonald House in Danville during the Food Check-Out Week program on Feb. 19. People can also drop off items at the Ronald McDonald House at 100 N. Academy Ave. in Danville on the morning of Feb. 19.
