November 6th – 13th your donation is matched 1:1 (up to $1000 per donor) for a goal of $2500
Wayne County is among the highest in Indiana for food insecurity. 17.6% of the population, including 28% of the children, are food insecure in Wayne County, translating to more than 12,000 residents (Feeding America, 2015).
We are currently raising funds that would be used to launch our innovative “Seed to Pantry” program that addressed food insecurity. The concept is similar to “Farm to Table”, only we take it a step back, and a step further – we teach members how to go from the seed to the plant, plant to produce, produce to a meal, or into the pantry. The overall objective is to teach participants how to yield over 500 pounds of food, about 3 weeks of food, and preserve it for later use for under $150. Most American families of 4 spend an average of $151 a week on food. Annually, that could add up to a savings of over $5,200 per family! Participants would gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to replicate independently, creating a lasting impact on their family’s financial situation, allowing them to become more self-sufficient, and overall reducing food insecurity in Wayne County.
We need your help. Right now is the best time to give to make a lasting impact as we have been accepted into the 2017 Wayne County Foundation Challenge Match where funds will be matched 1:1 (up to $1000 per organization). These funds will only be matched if they are received November 6th – 13th, 2017. Reaching our overall goal of $2500 will enable us to launch this program in the Spring of 2018.
