A One Day Round It Up for NOFA-NH
The Monadnock Food Co-op will hold a one day Round It Up donation drive for the Northeast Organic Farming Assocation of New Hampshire (NOFA-NA) on Friday, May 25, 2018. Customers will be able to round up their change at the register to support the Subsidized Farm Share Program, enabling Monadnock Region families in need to receive farm shares full of healthy, local produce.
The Farm Share Program works with certified organic NOFA-NH member farms to provide subsidized Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares to limited income New Hampshire residents, especially benefitting children, families and seniors. The program provides a season’s worth of local, farm fresh products-15 to 30 weeks of vegetables, fruit, dairy, eggs, meat, and/or bread. This year the co-op hopes funds raised from the Round It Up campaign will provide at least 1-3 low-income families with a farm share from Picadilly Farm.
“This is a unique opportunity to partner with NOFA-NH,” says Laura Carbonneau, Marketing Associate at the Co-op. “Our goal is to raise $350 for this great program. But we can only do it with the community’s help. This is a great example of how our community can come together to support one another.”
