Central Oregon Locavore Online Fundraiser
CENTRAL OREGON LOCAVORE NEEDS YOUR HELP!
We at SFJ can relate. Central Oregon Locavore is running a GoFundMe campaign, similar to our Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. Follow the links to learn more about Locavore and to show your support.
Central Oregon Locavore works for an ecologically stable and socially just food system in Central Oregon by improving access to fresh, nutrient-dense local food, educating the community about the benefits of sustainably produced food, and supporting farmers and ranchers.
Central Oregon Locavore is a non-profit. We count on community support in order to survive.
Today we have an urgent call for help. Because our previous lease expired in 2016, we were forced to move from our 1st St location to our new space on 3rd at Revere. This was a very large expense as we had to close the Marketplace for several weeks, remodel a dilapidated building and turn it into the lovely place it is today. Our exceptionally harsh winter resulted in high costs for snow removal and unusually low sales. Because of these things, we are now in difficult financial straits.
We need to raise $25,000 dollars this summer to keep the marketplace doors open.
