Sammamish Valley Fresh 2020 Program Partners with SV Grange
Dear Sammamish Valley Fresh Pop-up Market supporters: We want to share with you the great news of our Sammamish Valley Fresh seasonal pop-up market, and thank you for your support of local farm businesses. In eleven weeks, we purchased nearly $11,000 of fresh, organically grown produce from a dozen local farmers. Our fabulous volunteers then re-packed that food into individual bags for weekly distribution. Collectively, you purchased 250 bags of produce totaling $7,500, plus an additional $1,000 in ‘bulk’ sales. Additionally, nearly $2,500 worth of fresh produce was donated to Woodinville Storehouse Food Bank, Camp Unity and the Northshore Senior Center. Also, a big thank you to the SV Grange for providing the location, and co-hosting the Market.
This has been a very fulfilling experience for us with Sammamish Valley Alliance. We deepened our relationship with many local farmers, we met new volunteers and we discovered a new outlet for local, fresh food. You all responded with drive-through purchases and words of encouragement. Because of your fabulous support, we are resolute in our commitment to connect you with local farmers, local food, and we look forward to finding innovative ways to make that happen. Thank you for this very successful kick-off season. We all look forward to seeing you next year.
If you have any questions on any of our SVA activities, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Best regards, Tom Quigley, President, SVA and President SV Grange; and Brenda Vanderloop, Executive Director, SVA and Secretary, SV Grange. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
