Farm Bureau Fights Hunger Through Harvest for All Program

Farm families from across the nation donated 31 million pounds of food and raised $425,879 to help fight hunger in 2023 through Farm Bureau’s “Harvest for All” program.

Combined, the monetary and food donations totaled the equivalent of 26 million meals. Now in its 22nd year, Harvest for All is spearheaded by members of Farm Bureau’s Young Farmers & Ranchers program, but members of all ages from across the nation contribute to the effort. AFBF’s YF&R Committee Chair Kevin Lussier says, “Farm Bureau’s commitment to helping put food on the tables of those in need through Harvest for All remains strong.”

Florida Farm Bureau took top honors for donating the most food in 2023, 22 million pounds, while Michigan Farm Bureau took top honors for raising the most money in 2023, $222,000. In addition to raising food and funds, farmers and ranchers tallied 21,571 hours for local food insecurity efforts and other community service.
