Food Resource Bank

        John and Megan (daughter of John) Kube spoke to Kiwanis recently.  John spoke about Elanco’s involvement with the Food Resource Bank.  He told that over one billion people go to bed hungry every day.  Through teamwork with the Resource Bank, companies and individuals can help provide needed food.  The group tries to increase crop productivity through education.  They are fighting hunger by collaboration with countries that need help and are teaching better methods and techniques for farming.  The Bank has helped over 100,000 families over the years.  Jim Cherry (Kiwanian and Hancock County farmer) farms 50 designated acres of farmland with the produce going to support the Bank.

        The Kube’s visited one of the sponsored areas in Bolivia in February.  Megan showed pictures of the beautiful mountainous area and the people and told of their visit.  Rather than giving a handout, the group teaches how to improve production so as to become more self-sufficient.
