The Shelby High School cafeteria was used over the weekend to hold the Farm Bureau Community Breakfast. The breakfast, which was free of charge, was held in hopes of having people make donations to their local food banks. The Farm Bureau also wanted to inform people of their services and what they can do for the community.

 

Earl Lynch, one of the volunteers helping with the breakfast for the Bureau, explained "We'd just like to get our message out to let people know that farmers are wanting to make sure everyone has a way to get good, quality food, but at a fair price."

 

Lynch says the organization and their purpose have a special meaning to him. "I grew up on a farm near Shelby," Lynch mentioned. "The farm life that I've known is something that I'll cherish all my life. As a farmer, something people might not know is the satisfaction from raising up a crop...putting a small seed in the ground, and watching it flourish and grow.  It's something that's hard to explain," he mused, "but it's something I'll cherish for the rest of my life."
