Watauga County Community Foundation board members conduct site visit at the F.A.R.M. Café

Watauga Community Foundation board members (left to right) Gary Moss, Don Saunders and Brian Crutchfield meet with Full Circle Food Recovery Coordinator Elena Dalton to learn more about the $3,000 grant WCCF issued last Spring.

The project helped reduce usable foods entering landfills by gleaning excesses from local grocers, pantries and gardens and using those foods to create healthy, convenient meal options which can be stored and distributed year-round. The grant purchased a glass-front refrigerator housed at the F.A.R.M. Cafe. This unit has increased their overall storage capacity allowed the organization to distribute meals and ingredients on a donate-what-you-can basis directly from the Cafe.
