Yesterday afternoon I sat down with Kayla Norbash, Food Access Program Manager at Feed Communities. I shared a bit about the LFP. Then, Kayla shared a bit about Feed Communities, and I'm so grateful I got to learn more about it. At all levels, Feed Communities supports and expands local food systems. Feed Communities also has its own great programs: Farm to Preschool, Plant A Row, cooking classes, community gardens and food access initiatives, and--my favorite--The Ozarkansas Tool Library; those with a Fayetteville Public Library card can "check out" a tiller, and the organization just acquired its first mower! It's good to know this passionate, creative group of people works daily on addressing food insecurity in NWA.
If you'd like to learn more about Feed Communities, check out its website. (Follow the arrow or link below.) And if you, too, are concerned that one in four in NWA are food insecure, from its website, register for Feed Community's "Health and Hunger in NWA" conference. I'll be there!
