Hugh Pitts Memorial Turkey Donation

November 8, 2022 - November 16, 2022

For many years around Thanksgiving, longtime Farm Bureau board member and community servant Hugh Pitts donated a pallet of turkeys to the SLO County Food Bank. It was one of the many selfless acts of service Hugh led before his untimely passing in 2018, and SLO County Farm Bureau is continuing the tradition in Hugh’s honor.

Last year, members of the San Luis Obispo County Farm Bureau and the Pismo Oceano Vegetable Exchange (POVE) donated 100 turkeys and over 4,500 pounds of locally grown celery and cabbage to the SLO Food Bank. The SLO County agriculture community worked together to raise $6,430 to cover the cost of the turkeys.

If you have questions or would like to donate commodities to the cause, please call Farm Bureau at 805-543-3654.
