Fresh Local Food. Photo by Chrissie White.
Joining friends and family at tables filled with nourishing, locally produced fruit, veggies, grains, meat, milk, wine, and cheese is a joy that will be made all the sweeter once we’re able to gather together again.
And stable access to nutritious local food is a gift for which we are deeply grateful.
But today, many of the local farmers who provide this food, along with many local families, are struggling — their livelihoods and futures threatened by COVID-19.
Strong Farms, Strong Futures was a targeted appeal to help farmers overcome immediate challenges, help local families put good, healthy food on the table, and help stabilize our local fresh food supply for many years to come through continued farmland protection.
