Please give to the Farmworker Food Fund

A chill is in the air and winter is just around the corner.  Our cupboard at All Soul’s Church in Springfield is empty and we’re already getting calls from families who have no food to put on their tables.  It was a tough year on local farms and a lot of people were laid off even earlier than usual.  Please consider a small or large donation to support our neighbors who do the hard work of harvesting local products like strawberries and blueberries, planting mums, Easter lilies and poinsettias, and cutting lawns up and down the valley.

Last winter we gave out food to over 300 people each month from November to March.  This winter we again need your help to support this volunteer effort.  None of the money donated goes toward salaries, overhead or anything but the food we give directly to our immigrant neighbors.  This effort  brings together immigrants with members of the community who support their struggles and organize with them to make change.

Thank you for your support.
