The Arkansas Local Food Network is, deep breath, happy to announce the recipient of our 2013 Community Fund Project: Feed Fayetteville! Feed Fayetteville will use our $500 grant for their CareCropping initiative, a project that provides donated food from local farmers and gardeners to hunger relief efforts around Fayetteville. The initiative has already 16,137 pounds of produce to over 20 pantries and community meals!
A word from Adrienne Shaunfield, the project coordinator:
“Feed Fayetteville gratefully accepts the Arkansas Local Food Network grant to help with the growth of the CareCropping initiative. We are so excited about this award and look forward to CareCropping our way to Community Food Security! Thank you very much for this award and we look forward to sharing our progress with the Arkansas Local Food Network.”
A great example of community supported action. This grant was funded entirely by you, our community members, to support this project. Thanks and happy 2013! Keep an eye out for future projects!
