Community Spotlight

County Line Harvest

Our Food Donor of the Week is County Line Harvest​, a certified organic farm located in Petaluma near the Marin/Sonoma county line. We pick up donations of their wonderful produce—they focus primarily on a wide variety of greens—every Sunday at the Civic Center Market. And on several occasions, they’ve given us a terrific donation of lettuce, kale and chard directly from their farm! They are so generous and their healthy, fresh produce is beyond compare. What a difference they’re making for the people in our county who struggle with hunger. Check ‘em out!

Our Volunteer of the Week is Jo. Her favorite trip is to Ponsford’s Place Bakery, where she picks up their delicious pastries and drops them off to our recipients every Tuesday. Our recipients changed their delivery requirements a couple of times recently, but Jo was still able to deliver. Flexibility - a great quality in a great volunteer!
