Young Leader Mug Helps Harvest For All

There's a new mug in town... and it's helping to feed area families. It's the Young Leaders Harvest for All collectible mug, and the proceeds from the sale help support the Harvest for All program. 

According to the USDA, nearly 1 in every 10 households in Illinois faces hunger this year. That’s why Illinois Farm Bureau's Young Leaders team up with Feeding America, the nation’s largest food bank. Throughout the year, Young Leaders
donate food, funds and people power to create a hunger-free Illinois.

The insulated mug, made by Kong, sells for $40. It holds 26oz of hot or cold liquid, and is made of double-walled, stainless steel.

Other great features include:

• Keeps ice drinks cold for 24 hours
• Keeps hot drinks hot for over 2.5 hours
• Includes leak resistant slider lid and straw

The mugs can be purchased by filling out the order slip, or through the IFB website. Shipping is at no additional charge.

Direct any questions to the Young Leader Department at 309-557-2536.
