Michigan’s farm community is on a mission to eradicate hunger.
President Carl Bednarski tells Brownfield the Michigan Farm Bureau Family of Companies is transitioning into a For-Purpose business dedicated to hunger relief efforts.
“We’re going to solve this issue,” he says.
The organization has been partnering with the University of Michigan to identify areas of food insecurity and nutrition assistance shortcomings.
“In the studies that we’ve been doing now for the last couple of years, we’re finding that it isn’t in the urban areas, we’re seeing it in our rural communities where we have children that are food insecure,” he says.
