Sunrise Centre was recently awarded a Farm Bureau Double-Up Donation to fight food insecurity in the community. Huron Shores Farm Bureau has committed to donate $2,500 to the food pantry in their new facility to help purchase food for neighbors in need. The Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan Agent Charitable Fund (ACF) has committed to match the county’s donation for a total of $5,000 donated to the pantry. 

Huron Shores Farm Bureau is excited to support Sunrise Centre’s new facility and coordinated with local Farm Bureau Insurance agent Bobby Barrigar to facilitate this contribution. As Barrigar says, “The county Farm Bureau’s donation to the food pantry will help them open to the public ASAP. It’s in an area of town that would benefit greatly by its location.”  

The ACF Double-Up Donation Program supports county Farm Bureaus’ efforts to end hunger in their communities by providing matching funds to local organizations and programs which represent the ACF mission. County Farm Bureaus initiate the nomination and donation process, and the selected program is approved for an ACF matching donation by a committee of ACF donors based on the need of the organization, population being served and overall goal of the program. ACF will award $20,000 in county donation matches in 2024. 


The ACF, whose mission is to end hunger in Michigan, is a donor-designated fund administered through the Michigan Foundation for Agriculture. The Michigan Foundation for Agriculture, a 501(c)(3) governed by Michigan Farm Bureau’s board of directors, positively contributes to the future of Michigan agriculture through leadership and educational programming. Through grant programs like Feeding the Future, Farm Bureau agents, clients and partners provide food and educational programs to Michigan residents struggling with hunger and aid the more than 3,000 hunger-relief agencies throughout the state.
