Volunteers to pick crops at farm to feed hungry in D.C.

July 28, 2009

ANNAPOLIS - Maryland agriculture leaders will join American Farm Bureau Federation's staff and their families to volunteer with the Mid-Atlantic Gleaning Network Thursday at the Miller Farm in Clinton, Md.

More than 85 AFBF staff will spend the day picking collard greens and kale for the MAGN, which provides more than 3 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables to hungry people in the Washington, D.C., area.

The project is one of many national community-action programs through which Farm Bureau members donate time, food and funds to help ensure that every American can partake in the bounty produced on America's farms and ranches.

It is the Farm Bureau's goal to create a hunger-free America by helping to feed all Americans.

The Miller Farm is one of the oldest working farms in close proximity to Washington, D.C. It has been farmed for more than 150 years.
