Peach breakfast benefits GRUB farm participants

Posted by Ben Lawson  - bio | email

IDALOU, TX (KCBD) - Saturday morning, folks sat down to breakfast out at Apple Country Orchards to help raise money for the South Plains Food Bank GRUB farm program.  Each Saturday, Apple Country hosts an apple pancake breakfast with proceeds going to GRUB, but Saturday, they held their first peach day, with a peach pancake breakfast.

"We enjoy supporting the food bank and the food bank GRUB program," orchard owner Cal Brints said. 

KCBD NewsChannel 11 showed you how the July 4th weekend floods ruined about half of the GRUB farm crop this year, but that hasn't stopped participants from working.  GRUB stands for growing recruits for urban business.

Participants learn life and job skills while working at the South Pains Food Bank's farm and community gardens.  (Click Here) to learn more information about the GRUB program.
