In celebration of the Farm City week Nov. 18-24, the Effingham Farm Bureau held a food drive for the local food banks.

During November, Farm Bureau collected non-perishable food items and donations from the community to donate to FORCE, Food Outreach Cooperative of Effingham County.

As donations were received, names were entered into a drawing to win a one-year free memberships to Effingham County Farm Bureau. The winners of the drawing were: Clayton Dasher, Rev. Charles Thomas, Pauline Lovette and Lucille Williams. 

In addition to the food and donations from the community, Effingham County Farm Bureau also donated $500 to FORCE to distribute to all the local food banks.

Farm-City Week celebrates the cooperative relationships between farmers and their urban colleagues who help process, market, and retail the food farmers grow to the American consumer. This year marks the 56th anniversary of the annual celebration.
