WELLINGTON — Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) puts feet to its mission statement, “To be The Voice of Texas Agriculture,” by finding ways to assist in communities across the state. As agriculture is about providing food, fuel and fiber, the local Farm Bureau staff made a generous contribution last week to Collingsworth County Home Delivered Meals (CCHDM).
“Farm Bureau members sometimes don’t realize that insurance is just one of the many benefits and services FB members receive,” said Durk Green, agent.
“The FB Feeding Texas Program allows us to make the decision on how to best make an impact for the maximum benefit in our county.”
To help facilitate food distribution to those in need, the TFB Board of Directors approved the feeding program.
“During the past month, we have experienced developments that we have never before seen, much less expected,” said TFB President Russell Boening. “From the restrictions of social distancing to the availability of certain household staples, the abrupt changes in our everyday lives have astonished us.
While these sudden developments have affected us all in some way, those among us who are food insecure have been especially impacted.”
Boening and TFB believe that the unique circumstances experienced by so many will not last forever, and that better times are ahead. In the meantime, it is hopeful that by working together, they can make life just a little easier for those who need the help.
“We are so appreciative at Home Delivered Meals for the generous donation from Collingsworth County Farm Bureau as our program’s success is dependent upon community donations and support such as this,” said Linda Duke, program director of CCHDM. “Farm Bureau has a history of giving back to the community, and we are thankful that they chose to bless us in this way.”
