For GAGives day, Georgia Organics is asking the community to support small farmers across the state by donating to The Farmer Fund.
The Farmer Fund was created to support farmers in need. While the initial purpose was specific to natural disasters in the traditional sense, a pandemic like COVID-19 is its own natural disaster -- and is certainly an emergency.
Our farmers need support as they strive to continue growing healthy, local food for our children, families, seniors, first-responders, and food-insecure communities in this uncertain time. A coalition of Georgia's local food organizations mobilized quickly to identify challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing food and public health landscape. Current identified areas of need include:
Healthy food is essential during a global pandemic and local farmers are the backbone as providers of nutritious, immune-building sustenance. With strong support, local farmers can be adaptive and solution-oriented to best meet the needs of their own communities in metro Atlanta and across the State of Georgia.
Your support is a crucial lifeline in this unprecedented time of change. Please help recovery efforts by contributing to The Farmer Fund today. Your investment will ensure that we can support as many local farmers in Georgia as possible to feed our local communities now.
