Ah, technology. Love it or hate it, it’s something that is constantly evolving to be better, faster, and offer more features. The Arkansas Local Food Network has been in existence for a decade, and we’re proud of that! Unfortunately, that’s also how long it’s been since we have updated our online shopping platform. Over the last few years our online farmers market has seen declining sales due to increased competition in our area. We have worked hard to increase our outreach and determine what we need to work on to stay in operation, and overwhelmingly our customers have asked for a more user-friendly and up-to-date website.
We have finally reached a point where we are ready to transition, and we need your help to make it happen! We have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds to implement our new software, and we are asking all of our supporters to make a donation and share our campaign with their networks. We will also be hosting a special fundraiser event in January, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and stay tuned for that announcement!
We are so proud to have played a key role in increasing access to local food in Little Rock, and we would love to continue expanding and building on our mission statement. If you support local food, then you support ALFN!
