October is “Tackling Hunger Month.”

The Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI) in Crookston volunteered at North Country Food Bank to help distribute food to those who need it most.

AURI staff members assembled more than 200 boxes filled with food for hungry people.

As an organization, AURI encourages its employees to volunteer locally.

North Country Food Bank captures surplus food to feed hungry people. North Country delivers food to over 230 charitable organizations on an annual basis.
