BASF sponsors Harvest for Hunger in Saskatchewan
Aug. 20, 2013 - This weekend, BASF teams up with The Olde Tyme Harvest for Hunger in Langenburg, Saskatchewan to raise money for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank to provide food for less fortunate people who are struggling with famine and hunger.
This year's event will be a world record attempt for the 'Most Antique Threshing Machines Operating Simultaneously.' The current record is held by a threshing club in Rock River, Wisconsin in 2008 with 29 threshing machines operating at one time. This year, an expected 40 threshing machines will take part harvesting a 35-acre field of winter wheat. The harvested wheat will be donated to the Canadian Foodgrains Bank along with the net profit from the day.
As a major sponsor and long-time supporter of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, BASF has donated $10,000 to the Harvest for Hunger program, playing a key role in achieving fundraising goals.
Harvest for Hunger has a goal of raising $20,000 for hunger relief projects through its partnership with the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
