Farms, Food & Health News
As part of our series “Milestones … and Milestones in the Making,” we invited Patty Cantrell to reflect on the formative days of our Food & Farming program.
Farm to Neighbor is an innovative program that helps farms by giving them a new market for their produce and helps food pantry families with fresh, delicious and healthy food.
The Local Food Relief Fund started with a goal of raising $30,000 in a week. Instead, donors gave $130,579 for food pantries to purchase produce from local farmers.
