Hello Friends! It's been a busy couple of months but we didn't want to leave you in the dark about our YOG spotlight for May and June. For the past two months we've been focusing efforts on a project and sponsorship to support the future of Ohio's food and farms through Ohio Farm Bureau.
First up was dining to make a difference in May! On May 16 and 17, Bob Evans donated 15 percent of sales from patrons presenting a fundraiser flyer to the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation, Ohio FFA Foundation and Ohio 4-H Foundation. More than $13,000 was raised to support the great work of these organizations through the fundraiser.
We contributed by celebrating with a catered lunch at our office to give thanks to the great group of Farm Bureau folks who worked with us to make the project a huge success. We ate four meals at Bob Evans with friends and family during the fundraiser! Search for #BE4AG (Bob Evans for Agriculture) on social media to see the great results of participation throughout the state.
Second up was sponsoring the Ohio Farm Bureau’s Foundation Golf Invitational June 26.
The work of the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation is vital in helping build the next generation of farmers, protecting the environment, boosting Ohio’s economy and building stronger local communities. Agriculture really does impact our daily lives and it’s important to know how our food is produced and be engaged in supporting a strong future for the farmers who ultimately feed us.
Did you know Ohio Farm Bureau is an organization for all Ohioans, not just farmers? If you’d like to help support the future of Ohio's food and farms and learn more about the work of Ohio Farm Bureau, you can become an Our Ohio Supporter.
Remember, we are nothing without the food we eat.
