BLCT Recap of 1st Free Produce Giveaway
A huge thank you the Friendly Hmong Farmers and their youth program and Modest Family Solutions. Together we distributed over 500 pounds of produce from farms including Amador Farm and Songchaos Farm. This is the first of our Build Lake City Together free fresh produce events at the new Heart Space in Lake City (12700 Lake City Way). The building contains our business incubators Thriftology and Aorta Arts Productions as well as our community room where we plan to host the produce events at least once a month.
Special thanks to Annette from Kaffeeklatsch and Molly from the Farmer’s Market for volunteering their time. This project is made possible through the Seattle Department of Neighborhood’s “Food Equity Grant”. The goal is to increase access to culturally appropriate and healthy food options for our neighbors by supporting black and brown farmers while bringing awareness to our new space.
Our June date will be announced soon.
