November 2016 e-Newsletter

jliston 8-14As we near the Thanksgiving holiday, we’re profoundly grateful for your support while reminded of the cardinal rule…to wait to eat until everyone is served.

To this end, we’ve grown our programs to ensure everyone has access to the healthy food they deserve. More than ever, we look to your support to continue to extend our reach

This year, we’ve fed all-time record numbers of people six out of the last 10 months. Thanks to your generosity, we’ve been able to meet the need. In addition, we added the Bloom trailer and Bloom Community Farm to break down the obstacles preventing our neighbors from accessing food assistance. It is an extraordinarily exciting time to be involved with our organization.

Join us in ensuring this holiday time of joy, togetherness, and gratitude is shared throughout the communityClick here to make a gift to provide food and hope to your neighbors this holiday season.  

With Gratitude,
Jeanne Liston, Executive Director


FROM THE FIELD 


As Bloom Community Farm goes into hibernation for the winter, we reflect fondly on a momentous first season and look forward to all that lies ahead. Thank you to the over 250 people who joined us to celebrate at our appreciation party and ribbon cutting ceremony last month! We are still beaming from the incredible response and what fun we had.Click here for more photos of the evening.
