CALGARY, AB--(Marketwired - August 16, 2017) - Local country singer and songwriter, Dustin Farr, is gathering fresh garden produce from communities, neighbours, friends and family to bring to the Calgary Food Bank next Tuesday, August 22.

Farr explains the reason for this fresh food drive, "Growing up in a small farming community one of the best ways that friends and family supported each other in their times of need was by bringing food over to help lighten the load. It was from this that the Rural Roots Harvest Food Drive was born!"
