…or just support your local farmers

Since I’m announcing things today, don’t forget to attend the 12th annual “That’s My Farmer” meet and greet, where you can learn more about our local CSAs.

This message is from the Willamette Farm and Food Coalition, the folks who bring you your Locally Grown guide each year:

12th Annual That’s My Farmer!

Wednesday, April 6th, 6 – 8:30pm
First United Methodist Church, 13th & Olive
Doors open – 6:00pm
Program begins – 7:00pm
Suggested Donation: $5 per person/$10 per family
Come meet the heroes of the local food movement! Don’t miss your annual opportunity to meet the local farmers offering Community Supported Agriculture Programs (CSAs).
Subscribers to CSAs pay at the beginning of the season to become members of a farm, and receive a weekly box of fresh, nutritious and delicious food delivered to a convenient drop site throughout the growing season. There many CSA programs available, selling everything from fruits and vegetables, to grains, beans, meat, dairy and eggs.
That’s My Farmer is a unique partnership between 11 farms and 13 faith communities. Come and learn about your options for eating local, nutritious food all year.
There will be door prizes donated by participating farms, and Coconut Bliss for all.  Proceeds from the event go to the That’s My Farmer Low Income Fund to subsidize CSA shares for families in need. You can make a contribution to the fund at any time during the year.
