Farmer wins funds for Tipton Nutrition Center

Farmer wins funds for Tipton Nutrition Center

April 26th, 2011 by Democrat Staff in News

Howard Claas, Tipton, has been selected as a winner in the America's Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM program, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund.

Farmers were given the opportunity to win $2,500 for their favorite local nonprofit organizations and winning farmers designate a local organization to receive the donations. Claas has designated the Tipton Moniteau County Nutrition Center as the recipient of the donation.

The $2,500 donation was awarded on April 6 in Tipton.

Very excited to have been selected as the winner for Moniteau County, Claas said he chose the nutrition center because it helps feed a lot of people, even delivering food to the homebound.
