The Need is Great – You can Help

Farmers around the state can donate a portion – a bushel or an acre – of their harvest to the Farmers Ending Hunger Program. Wheat Growers can contribute bushels through the Bushels for Betsy Program at the time of sale to help fight hunger in Oregon.  YOU can make a cash donation to either program to aid in this fight.
