(WIAT) — A local farmer is making a major donation to the West Alabama Food Bank, but it doesn’t involve his produce.
Instead, it’s his contest winnings.
Lamar County dairy farmer, Will Gilmer, was chosen as a winner of the Faces of Farming and Ranching competition.
As a part of his prize, he received $5,000 to donate to a charity.
His donation to the food bank is used to help start secret meals for hungry children in Lamar County.
Gilmer’s contributions already helped provide meals for 51 children in the spring.
