Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry has received a $2,500 donation from Pana farmer James Ade and America’s Farmers Grow Communities. The donation will help the pantry purchase food to feed area residents. They serve approximately 350 to 450 community members each month. President of the Food Pantry, Charlie Weers, tells Regional Radio they don’t have paid employees and this donation really helps them out.
For five years, America’s Farmers Grow Communities has collaborated with farmers to donate over $16.5 million to over 7,300 community organizations across rural America.
