OPERATION HARVEST HELP IS A FUNDRAISING EFFORT SPONSORED BY THE FARMERS CO-OP ASSOCIATION OF FOREST CITY, LELAND, AND KIESTER, MINNESOTA. THE PROGRAM ALLOWS FARMERS TO DONATE THE SALE OF A SPECIFIC AMOUNT OF CORN OR SOYBEANS TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOOD BANK IN FOREST CITY OR FOOD PANTRY IN KIESTER.
FARMERS CO-OP ASSOCIATION MANAGER RANDY BROESDER TELLS ABOUT THE FUNDRAISER.
