local food pantries and organizations. Griffith has recently made
donations to ReStore Community Center and the Alger Food Pantry.
Invest an Acre, Griffith has been able to designate a portion of the
proceeds from his farm to go to the organizations of his choice.

distributed through Feeding America and the West Ohio Food Bank. For
every $1 donated, Feeding American food banks can provide three meals to
families in need.
