TradeTec Skyline Trade Show Exhibit Studio Gives Back with the Harvest for All Program
LOMBARD, IL -- TradeTec Skyline joined local companies in the HARVEST FOR ALL program that helped feed over 5,000 hungry Illinois families. The designer of trade show booths in Chicago was able to use 3000 square feet of land on a local farm to grow organic green beans.
Employees of TradeTec and their families volunteered their time on weekends to work the land from June through October. The volunteers prepped the soil, planted the beans, watered and weeded the plot and finally harvested over 50 bushel baskets of organic green beans. The beans were donated to Willow Creek Community Church and the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
"This was a wonderful experience for our entire team and one that we're already planning to expand on next year. The opportunity to give back in such a tangible and direct way to our local communities was very rewarding. It is extremely satisfying to see the results of your physical labor and to know it is going to help people who really need it," explained Ken Buckman of TradeTec Skyline (http://www.ttskyline.com).
The HARVEST FOR ALL program is a joint effort of the American Farm Bureau Federation's Young Farmers and Ranchers program and Feeding America. The program helps feed millions of hungry Americans across the country with food produced on local farms and ranches. This year the HARVEST FOR ALL program provided the equivalent of 415,000 meals to local families in the state of Illinois alone.
"The HARVEST FOR ALL experience was eye-opening for many of our volunteers. It's hard to understand just how much impact a program like this can have on a family or a community until you've participated in it. TradeTec's contribution reached 5,000 families, but that only scratched the surface which is one reason we want to do more for next year,” said Ken Buckman.
