The North Dakota Department of Agriculture sponsors the Hunger Free North Dakota Garden Program -- which is designed to help provide fresh fruits and vegetables to food pantries across the state.
North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring joined volunteers at a corn plot south of Bismarck, at the Lincoln-Oakes Nursery.
"It's a little over three acres," Goehring said. "We have numerous volunteers showing up to help us pick this corn. And it's going toward a worthy cause."
