Press Release via Monadnock Farm & Community Coalition

Monadnock farmers and food insecure households will benefit from a generous donation from the You Have Our Trust Fund, a donor-advised fund at the NH Charitable Foundation. A donation of $25,000 will find its way to MFCC's Locals' Local Fund to assure that locally produced food will be available alongside other food offerings at Monadnock Mobile Food Pantry delivery sites this summer and fall. 

"Our Food Access Alliance work group partnered with The Community Kitchen to develop and launch the Monadnock Mobile Food Pantry program in our region. Getting local onto the plates of all community members and infusing much needed income into the pockets of our farmers is a huge win-win for everyone involved." says Roe-Ann Tasoulas, MFCC director. "This very generous donation contributes both to the health of our local economy and to the health of our community."
