Happy Sunday everyone! Flower City Pickers diverted nearly 2,000lbs of food from the landfill to agencies in Rochester yesterday. THAT'S ALMOST A TON!!!!! We were also able to divert OVER a TON of food and send it with three local area farmers who will use it to feed their pigs and chickens. We only composted 225lbs! This is really impressive work!
The volunteers that come to the Market each week to help us are invaluable~ we LITERALLY could not do this without them - so we want to take a minute to thank all of them.
Cam, Phyllis, Kendra (and her sister Leslie), Noah, Deborah, Amy, Ashley, Jayne, Ellie, Liz, Brooklyn, Dagny and Gill - THANK YOU! We sent that 1999 lbs of food to 10 agencies in the Rochester area. This will provide food for families in need all over our community.
At a time like this when people are really starting to feel the pinch and the stress of all that has happened in our world since early March, Flower City Pickers is truly grateful for the volunteers who offer their Saturdays to us to help us.
FEED PEOPLE NOT LANDFILLS.
