County Food Pantry awarded America’s Farmers Grow Communities donation from local farmer

Local farmer, Rob Hetland, second from the left, presents the Sanborn County Food Pantry with a $2,500 grant donation.

Sanborn  County farmer Rob Hetland directed a $2,500 grant to the Sanborn County Food Pantry as part of the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. 

As part of their mission the food pantry will use the funds to help stock the pantry with food. The pantry also gives recipients a coupon to take to the local grocery store for a dozen eggs, a gallon of milk, and a loaf of bread.  It will be especially helpful at Christmas time when over 100 boxes of food are distributed throughout the county. “Sanborn County Food Pantry wants to thank Hetland and his family for thinking of us. Hetland told us that farmers feed people, so they thought this would be a very good place for their money to go” said the members of the food pantry.
