The Bethany Christian Men’s Fellowship (CMF) decided Sunday to sponsor a “Corn Jam” in 2014. The Corn Jam is a ministry of Operation Veggie Box (OVB), which has as its goal the reduction of the level of hunger in our region, both physical and spiritual.
The plan is to grow one acre of sweet corn and harvest and distribute to charities and needy families. CMF and OVB are seeking partners that can provide both strategic and tactical expertise. More about that will be forthcoming in the next few months.
The estimated cost of the Corn Jam is approximately $1,700. CMF and OVB hope to harvest around 300 bushels (about 18,000 ears) of sweet corn.
