Try on your farmer hat in this year’s “Farm-A-Thon”
“Working for a Better Food Future” is a fun(d)raising event that will kick off the day, where community members will champion this cause by participating in the farm-a-thon challenge. Farmer Champions will aim to raise their own fundraising goal by volunteering as a farmer for several hours in the morning, and sharing their experience with family and friends who have pledged donations.
