Under the direction of the Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee, Food Check-Out Week is celebrated by Farm Bureau members from across the state by collecting food, money and other needed items for Pennsylvania’s Ronald McDonald Houses or local food banks. Every participating county Farm Bureau conducts its collection drive differently, but some examples of events include: collection boxes at area supermarkets and schools; coin collections at schools and churches; bake sales, and 4-H and FFA fundraisers. Then, during Food Check-out Week, all of the collected items and cash are presented to the Ronald McDonald Houses in Philadelphia, Hershey, Danville, Scranton and Pittsburgh, or to a local food bank.
For additional information on donating to this wonderful event, please contact your county’s Farm Bureau or call the Community Outreach Director, at 717-761-2740 or email.
