Small Farms Food Drive - benefiting Solid Rock Food Closet

Alleghany Cooperative Extension is participating in a statewide food drive that will benefit the Solid Rock Food Closet of Sparta.  We are participating in conjunction with the 30th Annual Small Farms Week celebration, March 20-26.

Sponsored by The Cooperative Extension Program at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, Small Farms Week pays tribute to the state’s small-scale growers. By expanding the scope of this year’s observance to include a food drive, Cooperative Extension is hoping to acknowledges farmers’ contribution to the health and economy of North Carolina as well as bring awareness to food insecurity across our county and state.

We are hoping to collect 125 cans by March 15 but we need your help!!!

If you have canned and non perishable items you would like to contribute, please bring them to 90 S Main St, 3rd floor.  There is a box set up for your donations.  Anything is appreciated.

If you have questions, please contact the office at 336-372-5597.
