ADA — Ted Griffith, of Powell Seeds, Ada, has recently joined with Feeding America to take part in the Invest an Acre program to provide funds for local food pantries and organizations. Griffith has recently made donations to ReStore Community Center and the Alger Food Pantry.

Through Invest an Acre, Griffith has been able to designate a portion of the proceeds from his farm to go to the organizations of his choice. Monsanto will then match the amount of the donation which will be distributed through Feeding America and the West Ohio Food Bank. For every $1 donated, Feeding American food banks can provide three meals to families in need.

Area farmers are encouraged to paricipate in the Invest and Acre program to help organizations like ReStore and the Alger Food Pantry provide meals for local families. More information can be found by visiting InvestAnAcre.org.
