Mason County Farm Bureau, Michigan dairy farmers donate to food club.

LUDINGTON — The Mason County Farm Bureau, along with United Dairy Industry of Michigan donated several items of food to the Lakeshore Food Club today which will feed over 100 families. The donation included 48 hams, 180 pounds of butter and 96 blocks of cheese. Donations also included various canned food items.

“The donation is a combination of contributions by our local farmers and a grant from United Dairy Industry of Michigan,” said Seth Earl, president of Mason County Farm Bureau. “A few weeks ago Mason County Farm Bureau hosted its Farm to Fork Gala which engaged community members in conversations with farmers. We asked the guests to bring food items to donate. The UDIM grant help enhance those donations.”

“We really appreciate donations such as this,” said Sarah McMahon, program director for Lakeshore Food Club. “Meat is always difficult for us to source, so we rely on donations. Our members come in looking for meat all the time because it’s more expensive to buy in the stores.”
