The Greensboro Association’s Community Relief Fund has awarded its first recipients of emergency funding.
$5000 will go to the Center for Agricultural Economy who will distribute food vouchers that can be used at the Hardwick Area Food Pantry, Willey’s store (Greensboro), C&C Market (Barton), Buffalo Mountain Market (Hardwick), Smiths (Greensboro Bend) and both Genny’s in Craftsbury and Albany.
Another $5000 will be going to the Hardwick Area Food Pantry because of the increased food demand in the area after the flood. They have seen a 25% uptick in usage since even before the flood, and with the damage done to many farms in the area that have helped supply the pantry with food, they anticipate a high demand for fresh produce and expect it to be more expensive to get their hands on.
And $1000 will go to Smith Store in Greensboro Bend for their emergency food and fuel fund. Smiths has been delivering food and supplies to people in the area and have been feeding many of the road crews working frantically to get our roads back in order.
There are other recipients in the works, and we will announce them as we are able. But the fund could still use support — every dollar donated will go back to the Greater Greensboro Community.
