We appreciate the opportunity to meet with local farmers. The number of participating farmers is growing quickly.
Everyone was eager to participate and to give a small donation of wheat for a good purpose.
Most of the farmers were hoping that The Bread of North Dakota will help with promotional efforts to increase wheat prices.

Group seeks wheat donations Written By: Keith Norman | Aug 30th 2019 - 10am.
A Grand Forks high school student is seeking small donations of wheat from around North Dakota in an effort to promote agriculture.
The project is called Bread of North Dakota and is also an educational opportunity for youth involved in the program.
Oliver Dalmi, a student at Central High in Grand Forks, is asking wheat farmers to furnish a half-pound sample of wheat that would then be processed and baked into loaves of bread. The bread would be presented at events as a way to promote North Dakota agriculture.
Dalmi is seeking farmers willing to donate wheat as well as events where Bread of North Dakota could participate.

An article about us, asking local farmers to contribute to the project was posted on the front page of the Devils Lake Journal. Thank you for the support!
Today we welcomed our first participants and the first donation of wheat has arrived. Thank you to the elevators in Manvel and in Grand Forks!
