SAFFORD- Local First Arizona and the Gila Valley Food Coalition is hosting a Farmers and Families Potluck on October 2nd from 5-7pm at Our Neighbor’s Farm and Pantry. Local farmers, ranchers, growers, gardeners and food producers are invited to attend this family-friendly event to network and connect with other local producers and the Gila Valley Food Coalition.
Locally sourced roast beef and fresh-made ice cream will be provided. Local First Arizona and the Coalition ask that attendees bring their favorite side dish or drink to share. There will also be kids activities, icebreakers and door prizes.
This will be the third event of a series put on by Local First Arizona and the Gila Valley Food Coalition to support local producers in the Gila Valley. Past events included a Funding for Farmers Workshop and a Social Media and Marketing Basics Workshop.
Local growers and producers are essential to the Gila Valley community and are an invaluable asset to our local food system. It is the mission of the Gila Valley Food Coalition to strengthen the food system in the Gila Valley by supporting local farmers and producers. The Gila Valley Food Coalition also works to eliminate food insecurity and hunger by partnering with local food pantries and health organizations.
Our Neighbor’s Farm and Pantry is located at 1020 S 10th Ave, Safford, AZ 85546, behind the Methodist Church. For questions and more information please contact Samantha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
