Many of you are already familiar with Green Groceries, ALFN’s partner program with Christ Episcopal Church. Green Groceries’ mission is to provide struggling local families with fresh, healthy food, and to support local farmers while doing it! Currently their program provides 25 local families with a biweekly delivery of groceries at Christ Episcopal Church. These groceries includes in-season vegetables, fruits, legumes, responsibly-farmed meat, bread, and farm eggs – all from local farmers.
This program has been running strong for three years, thanks to its incredible base of supporters. Now YOU have the chance to support it too! ALFN is providing this program with a $2,500 grant, and we’ve challenged Green Groceries to raise a matching $2,500 by December 31st. This amount is enough to buy 160 shares of groceries! Please consider giving to this great cause, whether it’s $1 or $100 (any support of $100 or more gets a cool tote bag!).
This money goes directly to buying food for their participants. How is the money spent? $2 provides a family with supplementary local food for a day, $15 provides a family with supplementary local foods for a week, and $60 provides a family with supplementary local foods for a month. Donate directly to Green Groceries and help them meet their goal by December 31st. Share with your friends and families, because this is one check we can’t wait to write! Also, be sure to keep up with the program on Instagram and Facebook.
