#SpoonSalute to American Farmers Raises $10,000

We would like to thank the hundreds of people who joined FCSAmerica in offering a “spoon salute” to honor the hard work and productivity of the American farmer. We invited others to participate in our cereal box campaign by posting their spoon salute on social media, using the hashtag #spoonsalute. For each salute posted, we pledged to make a donation to the food banks serving Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. Public response helped us reach our goal of donating $10,000 to help fight hunger in our four-state territory. Enjoy a sampling from FCSAmerica’s #spoonsalute campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
