The Summit County Farm Bureau’s 9th Annual Farmers’ Share Breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 18th at Copley High School, 3807 Ridgewood Road in Copley. A breakfast of pancakes (with local maple syrup), sausage, scrambled eggs, milk and coffee will be served 8-11 AM at the minimal cost of $1.00 (which reflects the farmers’ share of income from this meal), with all proceeds going to the Food Bank.
SCFB will also be holding a canned food drive: canned good donors will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to WIN a container of Smith Dairy ice cream every month for a year. The canned or packaged food will be donated to The Salvation Army.
The Annual Farmers Share Breakfast is an opportunity for SCFB to promote agriculture through education and involvement, serving as the voice of agriculture in Summit County. Attendees can enjoy videos of local farmers; The Hartongs, The Hawks, and The Calls who were interviewed and asked to reflect on their lives as farmers.

Children and adults will be encouraged to participate in a take home project, make your own flower pot.
