The “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch” contest has wrapped up for 2019!

For three weeks (October 14th through November 1st), farmers were invited to enter the contest by providing us with their names and cell phone numbers. At 9:30 am each weekday, we drew a name and called a farmer – and if they answered their phone by saying “KMCH, Bring Me My Lunch”, that’s exactly what we did! We delivered them lunch for four from one of our local restaurants – right to their farm or field as they worked hard during the harvest.

Thanks to all of this year’s participating restaurants for donating lunch – Manchester Dairy Queen, Widner’s Ice Cream Parlor, Aunt Emmy’s, Pizza Ranch, The Bread Basket, Olive That Deli, Rio Blanco, Quik ‘n Handi, Hart Ridge, April’s Downtown Diner, Cooper’s Place in Ryan, Brew & Brew in Dyersville, Happy Joe’s in Dyersville and Bulicek’s in Delhi!

Thanks to the contest’s sponsor, Simon’s Grain & Feed, who joined KMCH in providing a goody bag full of souvenirs, along with the Delaware County Pork Producers in honor of October Pork Month!

And thank you to all 118 farmers who entered the contest – we wish you and all of our area farmers the best of luck as you try to complete the harvest under this year’s difficult conditions.

Congratulations to this year’s winning farmers!
