UINTA COUNTY— Uinta County Farm Bureau is helping fight the battle against food insecurity in what is called a “Harvest for All.”
“The Harvest for All program consists of contributions of time, money and food to work together to make sure that no one in our community has to face hunger without help through the local food bank.” says Brandon Day, UCFB YF&R committee chair.
This year, to contribute to the effort of feeding the hungry in the Bridger Valley, Uinta County Farm Bureau has chosen to join with the Bridger Valley Chamber of Commerce to participate in the Fall Festival that will be held on Nov. 1, at Heritage Barn from 5 – 8 p.m. Local businesses will be making food donations to enter a carnival game booth in the festival. Kids will be able to get 25 tickets for two cans of non-perishable food or $5. This festival will give kids in the Valley a second opportunity to do some trick-or-treating while enjoying lots of fun and games in a warm environment.
Uinta County Farm Bureau has committed to match these food donations 100 percent up to 625 pounds which will provide over 485 meals to local families through the Bridger Valley Coalition of Churches Food Pantry.
