“Brown Bag It Wednesday” for Only $5!
In celebration of National 4-H Week and National Pork Month, Latham Hi-Tech Seeds on Oct. 9 is helping sponsor a pork lunch fundraiser for the Franklin County 4-H Scholarship Endowment. We’ll be selling “brown bag lunches” in the parking lot of Fareway in Hampton, Iowa, from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.
We’re providing two options for the Brown Bag Lunch: Option 1 is 2 pork burgers for $5; Option 2 includes 1 pork burger, a bag of chips and a bottle of water for $5. Lunches will be ready to “grab and go” for farmers who are busy and need lunch taken out to the field or for any local resident who would like to support 4-H with a quick and easy lunch.
Thanks to the Franklin County Pork Producers for donating the pork burgers, and special thanks to Larry Sailer is halting his own harvest to grill Wednesday’s lunch. We also appreciate the support of Fareway and KLMJ Radio for contributing to the success of this event. Broadcaster Craig Donnelly has been known to flip burgers and fill orders in between his live radio reports, and we greatly appreciate that!
Last year we grilled 400 burgers and raised a record-setting $4,000 thanks to matching funds from an anonymous donor. Please help make this year’s Brown Bag fundraiser another successful event.
We hope to see you at Fareway in Hampton on Wednesday! The forecast calls for sunshine and 74 degrees – perfect for grilling and enjoying a tailgate lunch.
