It’s the 13th year for Bushels for Hunger which has farmers donating a portion of their grain at their local grain elevator to Bushels for Hunger. That grain is sold and the money from the sale becomes part of the donation to the River Bend Food Bank. Over the course of 13 years, more than $277,000.00 has been raised for the Food Bank, not counting what will be donated today in Davenport..
