As part of its statewide We’re in This Together initiative, Farm Bureau Insurance says it will give back more than $5 million to its members across the state as they support local businesses in their communities.

“In this unprecedented time, Farm Bureau’s We’re in This Together program is one part of our ongoing efforts to give back to our members as we weather the COVID-19 crisis together,” says Don Simon, Farm Bureau Insurance CEO. “We’re proud to support our members as they invest in local restaurants across Michigan.”

The We’re in This Together initiative is designed to give back to members and local communities in several ways, including:  

Giving back to members. More than 215,000 Farm Bureau members, comprised of auto insureds and others, will immediately enjoy a meal at one of 1,200 local restaurants.

Honoring first responders. Farm Bureau will fund an additional 18,000 meals (15 at each of the 1,200 restaurants) specifically for first responders.

Investing in local businesses. Many farmer members supply food to restaurants across the state. Local restaurants, and small businesses in general, are the backbone of Michigan's communities, Simon notes.

This $5.4 million initiative is only one part of Farm Bureau’s overall We’re in This Together effort and follows on the heels of the Farm Bureau Family of Companies’ Million Meal Challenge, which funded 1.1 million meals through the seven food banks across Michigan for children and families honoring the stay home, stay safe effort.
