An auspicious start for AFP in 2021
In a fitting, though perhaps unwitting, tribute to Chinese New Year — Year of the Ox! — the stalwart neighborhood coordinators of the Ashland Food Project hitched up their wagons on Feb. 13 and rolled into the Ashland Emergency Food Bank with an impressive haul of provisions. The strong-as-oxen SOU Raiders football team then went to work on the loads, putting their muscle into sorting and bin stacking.
AFP appreciates these hard-working folks and our generous donors who pulled together in this mighty effort, under COVID-constrained conditions. Thank you for your generous contributions and your steadfast support of our mission to ensure food security in our community.
The Year of the Rat certainly left its teeth marks, but AFP is in this for the long haul. To join this six-times-a-year team effort to bolster the health and prosperity of all our neighbors, please visit ashlandfoodproject.com.
Ingrid Laursen, for the Ashland Food Project Steering Committee
