Harvest for All
Harvest for All is a year-round food drive ran by the Young Farmers & Ranchers committee. Throughout the year, farmers and ranchers across the United States donate time, money and food to local Feeding America affiliates and other food banks. Since the program’s creation, YF&R committees across the country have provided more than 83 million meal equivalents to American families. In 2015, Nevada YF&R committees volunteered 70 hours, donated $2,421 and collected 700 pounds of food for the Harvest for All program.
Legal Defense Fund
The Nevada Farm Bureau Legal Defense Fund was initiated in 2015. The primary objective in using this fund is to implement Farm Bureau agricultural and rural policy issues through the state and federal court systems. Farm Bureau uses these funds to participate in legal actions either as a party, intervenor, as an amicus curiae (friend of the court) or as a financial contributor to policy-related litigation efforts of others.
The NVFB Legal Defense Fund cannot be used to provide legal advice to individuals but is used in cases that involve Farm Bureau policy issues. Voluntary contributions support legal action concerning agricultural issues and other matters of a statewide nature and importance to Farm Bureau members. Fund distribution is governed by the NVFB Board of Directors. The NVFB Legal Defense Fund seeks contributions to help fund its efforts.
Political Action Committee
Nevadans For Families And Agriculture is a Political Action Committee formed by Nevada Farm Bureau. The PAC will seek candidates running for public office in Nevada who share the same beliefs of Nevada Farm Bureau and our policy.
