Farmers to Families – ON HOLD
We received the following news this morning:
The million and a half boxes designated for Texas were over-extended across the state, and no one let Dennis Turnipseed know until today. Dennis is the Executive Director of Eyes On Me [who has done so much wonderful work in Houston, and who has been working with the distribution of the Farmers to Families boxes]. The good news is that no produce has gone to waste, but that also means we have no choice but to push pause on the “Farmers to Families” neighbor outreach.
So the Farmers to Families is “on hold” for now. Be on the lookout for future announcements. Hopefully, next time we will be better prepared to respond.
