A Texoma farmer plans to donate some fresh produce to the Wichita Falls Area Food Bank.

But the amount he gives is dependent on the public.

Today, Tom Morath a farmer from Scotland dropped off several boxes of tomatoes, zucchini and squash at the food bank.

But he plans to give more-- with your help.

For every $100 spent this Saturday at the Red River Farmer's Market, Morath will donate 50lbs of fresh produce to the food bank.

It's a donation food bank officials say will help them meet a requirement.

"Feeding American has this new mandate. We're all trying to meet the one goal and that at all food banks, 25% of their distribution is produce. And, essentially we need to double our produce distribution so this is actually gonna help."

You can take part in this promotion by heading to the Red River Farmers Market this Saturday.

It's located on Hatton Road and will be open from 7:30 p.m. until all produce sells out.
