ACCESS Jackson County:
Applegate Farmers- What’s Available Right Now!?
Did you hear the great news about Oregon Food Bank receiving $8million in emergency assistance for the Oregon Food Bank Network? That translates into helpful news for our local farmers. ACCESS will be reimbursed for local food purchases that we make this week. We are hoping to collect a list of what farmers have available right now. We want to buy produce that is already packaged in amounts that are appropriate for one household.
They can send their lists to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
