Garfield County Farm Bureau Donates $15,000 to OKFB Foundation for Agriculture Garfield County Farm Bureau recently donated $15,000 to the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture to provide a new livestock trailer for the foundation’s Pork for Packs and Beef for Backpacks programs. The trailer was unveiled at OKFB’s 77th annual meeting held Nov. 16-18 in Norman, Oklahoma.

“We’re so thankful for the generosity of Garfield County Farm Bureau members,” said David VonTungeln, foundation president. “Their generous donation will help the foundation provide food for thousands of hungry children.”

A partnership between the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, Oklahoma FFA Association, Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma and other agricultural organizations, the Pork for Packs and Beef for Backpacks programs use donated cattle and hogs to produce protein sticks for the food bank’s Food for Kids program.

The Food for Kids program provides backpacks filled with non-perishable, kid-friendly food to eat on weekends and school holidays. Learn more on the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s website.
