1. Help Local Foods Connection by adopting one of our 2008 families!
You can provide a tremendous service to Local Foods Connection by volunteering
only a few hours a month! Please consider becoming part of the support system
for one of our client families this year. As a “Family Friend” volunteer,
you will be responsible for calling the family once a week. During the
conversation, you can:
-Remind them to pick up their CSA share or ask if they have picked up their CSA
-Ask if they recognize all the vegetables in the CSA share
-Ask if they need recipe ideas
-Provide them encouragement for completing any educational activities they have
We need about 40 volunteers. You will be given a short training session. You
can volunteer from any location – home or school or wherever you have a phone
and a few minutes of time.
