Askers Harvest Foods in Grangeville ID helps community to give back.

Lots of community efforts going on these days in Grangeville Idaho, and its high time we highlight some of the good deeds being performed among businesses, churches, clubs, organizations and citizens.

I'll update this list of other recent endeavors by our community as a sign of Thankfulness and Support for those in need.   In Grangeville, any efforts to help supply the Camas Prairie Food Bank is considered a gesture of "Neighbors Helping Neighbors".

If I've missed anyone, please let me know with an email to stop hunger at camasprairiefoodbank.org
