Valley Organic Growers Association (VOGA) will be using money from a generous West Elk Community fund grant to support Delta County’s food needs.
The WECF grant money was used during the summer to help low-income families and the Senior Lunch Program, our Buy Local Campaign, and CSA Boxes. Now VOGA will use some of the leftover funds to provide Thanksgiving boxes to families in need. The box will include local produce from our VOGA members and will be coordinated through Farm Runners (box will not include meat).
Citizens are encouraged to nominate a Delta County family that would appreciate a local box of produce this holiday season. VOGA will be providing 20 boxes total to 20 families in the community. Families in need may nominate themselves. Food boxes can be picked up at Farm Runners in Hotchkiss before Thanksgiving day or can be delivered - more details to follow regarding the pickup.
