Volunteers at the Royal City Food Bank received a $2,500 gift from America’s Farmers Grow Communities, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund and selected by local farmer Pat Lee Jr. of Grant County. The donation will help the organization buy basic food items and pay for facility rent and utilities.
The food bank served 150 households, or about 650 family members, each week since December and January.
