Food Drive Results

Western AgCredit is pleased to report that this year was the most successful Farmers Feeding Families Food Drive yet! During the course of the food drive, 35,000 pounds of food was collected and donations totaling over $10,000 were sent to food banks in Western AgCredit’s service area.

This year, the food drive was moved from November-December to September-October so customers could donate their product during harvest time as part of this food drive.
Here is a breakdown of the what was collected by branch:

Logan 75 pounds
Cedar 90 pounds
Richfield 7,835 pounds
Roosevelt 735 pounds
Spanish Fork 20,464 pounds
South Jordan 81 pounds
Evanston 2,955 pounds
Tremonton 3,350 pounds

As the branch that collected the most food, Spanish Fork’s chosen food bank, Tabitha’s Way, received a $5,000 check from CoBank, Western AgCredit’s funding bank.

Western AgCredit’s $5000 contribution was divided and sent to the food banks supported by the other branches according to pounds of food collected.

Western AgCredit is grateful for the support this annual food drive receives from borrowers and local communities. We’re also grateful for the partnership with CoBank that allows us to bring more matching funds to this project.
