Jefferson County Farm Technology Days, taking place July 23-25 at Walter Grain Farms in Johnson Creek, Wis., will be hosting an inaugural food drive. This event is designed for show attendees to further give back to the surrounding communities.
“Food pantries are running low on food during July, as kids have been out of school for one month,” says Tracy Brandel, executive board member for Wisconsin Farm Tech Days in Jefferson County. “If every person could bring one nonperishable food item, we could supply over 40,000 items to our local food pantries.”
The Jefferson County FTD Foods Committee is working in conjunction with the Food Pantries of Jefferson County to collect nonperishable food items at each admission gate during the Jefferson County show. Each attendee is asked to donate at least one item. In return for their donation, guests will receive a voucher that can be redeemed at a beverage tent for items including cookies, coupons and other promotional products.
