Second Harvest of South Georgia gets $2,000 donation


Lots of folks outside the gates ready to see Luke Bryan perform in Adel.
Its all part of his Farm tour, which kicked off with tailgate event earlier this afternoon.
Bayer partnered with the tour to present Second Harvest of South Georgia with a check for two thousand dollars to help with their mission.
They'll use the funds to purchase four tons of food for families in need.

"The idea that there are Americans out there who are starving and don't know where their next meal is coming from is a crime, and so when we look at folks such as our partners at Second Harvest, they are doing incredible work here in Georgia, making sure they are feeding a lot of Americans who don't have enough food," says Ray Kerins, Senior Vice President of Bayer.

"Even though the economy has started to improve, the people who are in need will be the last ones to see the recession symptoms go away, so our need has not decreased even though the economy is getting better," says Eliza McCall, with Second Harvest of South Georgia.

McCall says one in four people struggle with hunger, one in three are children.
