Spring is in the air and Tuesday Market is around the corner! Mark your calendars…
On December 1, Grow Food Northampton is participating in Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving that helps balance out the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday by encouraging everyone to spend on charitable causes as part of the holiday season. As Valley Gives is not taking place this year (it will return in May, 2016), many local nonprofits are participating in #GivingTuesday for the first time, and we encourage all of our supporters to participate and give gifts of any amount to our cause and others you believe in.
The first $5,000 we raise on or before December 1 will be matched by generous members of our board! Our goal for the event is $15,000, which will put the wind in our sails for completing our year-end fundraising so that we can deliver even more local food opportunities to gardeners, farmers, school children, and low-income neighbors.
