DeKalb County produce growers to discuss how to help decrease hunger locally

SYCAMORE – Local produce growers in DeKalb County and surrounding counties will meet next week to discuss how increasing access to locally grown produce could decrease hunger.

The meeting is scheduled for 1 p.m. Jan. 23 at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau building, 1350 W. Prairie Drive. Anyone who raises produce and would like to be part of an effort of sharing excess or grade B produce with our hungry neighbors is encouraged to attend. The event is sponsored by Feeding Illinois and the Illinois Commission to End Hunger Emergency Food System Working Group.

For information, call Dan Kenney, executive director of DeKalb County Community Gardens and Emergency Food System Working Group member, at 815-793-0950.
