Harvest with a Heart
Food Resource Bank receives donations from harvest, pie auction
MAZON — The Gantzert farm north of Mazon was the site of a rather special corn harvest on Sunday, as members of the Park Street Congregational United Church of Christ in Mazon and the First Congregational Church of Western Springs came together for morning worship services, lunch, a pie auction, and rides in combines as the crop was harvested.
This is the 11th year the churches have joined forces – country farmers and city dwellers with hearts – as part of the Foods Resource Bank’s annual missions project.
As Mazon church member Donna Jeshke explained it, her church took up the project as a way to provide help with sustainable farming to foreign countries where hunger is a big problem.
