“Turnip For What” event to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank

“Turnip For What” event to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank

Larose, LA - On Sunday, Feb. 21st, the members of Louisiana Chi chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilon will host its inaugural “Turnip for What” event at a local farm in Larose. This event will involve members of the fraternity helping to harvest turnips, which will be donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Last year, community volunteers collectively harvested 168,000 pounds of turnips. One of the limiting factors in harvesting more turnips was manpower. Fraternity members plan to help this year to contribute to exceeding last year’s harvest.
