Rockford Farm Market is Feeding America

Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief organization, has teamed up with our local farmers markets again. Every other Saturday, volunteers have collected fresh produce donated by the people taking advantage of all the wonderful locally grown food sold at the Rockford Farmers Market or by the farmers themselves. They helped collect 626 pounds of food on one Saturday!

Volunteers are still needed for the October 9 and 23 Rockford Farmers Markets as well as other dates for the Plainfield and Fulton farmers markets. If anyone is interested, please call Nathan O’Connell at (616) 606-2151.

According to Feeding America’s statistics, 49 million Americans are facing hunger and 96 billion pounds of food are wasted every year. Be part of the solution!
