Giving Tuesday is almost upon us, but we have more work to do before then! This year two of our ambassadors have been hard at work on our Nourish Your Neighbor (NYN) campaign, trying to create a healthier food drive for the community. We kicked NYN off with a No-Cost Farmer’s Market on Nov. 10th, and will be collecting items for the food drive until Nov. 27th. For every item donated, we will match with $1. The goal is 10,000 items and $10,000, and we can’t do it without all of you!
Last year we ran a similar matching campaign, and members of the Red Hook community donated over 5,500 non-perishable items, with the AFF donating $3,250 to the RHFA to support local families during the holiday season. We hope to be able to provide more items and food vouchers this season, and donate healthier items as well!
