Is your summer garden “in?” Does it include an extra row of veggies for RCFB?
When you bring in summer produce we give you a complimentary t-shirt and lawn sign to proudly proclaim that you “Grow for RCFB.” Last year our friends and neighbors brought us 55,427 pounds of produce, sometimes, quite frankly, one tomato or zucchini at a time. Does it make a difference? Just ask the little girl who made a smiley face out of her slice of honey dew melon. Her smile says it all!
But you say you don’t garden? You can still help us out by visiting our booth at the Wednesday Cesar Chavez Park Farmer’s Market and donating fresh produce. Our “Giving Fresh” program encourages you to buy from local farm vendors and donate an extra pound of anything fresh and in season to River City. Drop it by our booth and we’ll make sure it is enjoyed by clients within 24 hours. So get growing any way that you can!
