“In three years of harvesting fresh food from farms ourselves, we’ve gone from 100,000 pounds of food to 440,000 pounds to an estimated 850,000 pounds this year,” Forgotten Harvest President & CEO Susan Goodell was quoted in Chrysler’s press release as saying.  “One of our greatest barriers to further growth was the lack of equipment to support our staff and volunteers – and today, Ram Truck, Case IH and New Holland have delivered what we need to keep growing our farming operations to feed hungry families in need.”
