On June 21, Farm Aid founder and president Willie Nelson delivered a grant from the organization to help the recovery effort for farmers in flood-stricken Iowa.

The donation from the group’s Family Farm Disaster Fund went to the Iowa Grassroots Coalition, a group of farm and faith-based organizations in Iowa. Further grants will help those affected in Wisconsin and across the Midwest, where at least four million acres of farmland are underwater. “Our hearts go out to the folks all along the Mississippi who are being affected by the severe floods that have taken out towns and farms in Iowa and Wisconsin,” Willie says. “At Farm Aid, we have had friends in these communities for 23 years who can deliver immediate support to family farmers, getting them back on the land, growing good food for all of us.” To donate, go to farmaid.org.
