Thank you so much to all who donated our Fresh Food Connect GoFundMe Campaign! We are so grateful and humbled by the amazing support, with 79 donors surpassing our goal of $5,000 in less than 10 days. These contributions fuel our work to connect backyard and community gardeners to local hunger relief efforts.
We are facing a troubling reality with a projected 5 million Americans, or one-in-four children, who will face food insecurity by the end of the year. We also know the power of community action and support. We commit to using every dollar raised in this GoFundMe to celebrate the power of locally grown food and the critical work of our front-line non-profit partners ensuring that every community member has access to nutritious food. We are working to build a hyper-local and resilient food system, and we so appreciate the contributions to this effort!
Again, we are so grateful, and please do not be a stranger! Send us updates from your garden, ideas on how we can create greater impact, and how you may want to become more involved! We would love for you to sign up for a newsletter here or send us a message at email@example.com.
We love you like our Sungold tomatoes,
