AgFirst partners with BRWIA to increase food access, support regional farmers
Ensuring access to high-quality local food is vital to a strong community. That’s why AgFirst Farm Credit Bank is proud to support Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture in their efforts to increase food access while also supporting regional farmers.
The women-led organization will use a $5,000 donation from AgFirst to support its Winter Farmers’ Market in Boone, N.C. Shoppers at this market can take advantage of the group’s Double Up Food Bucks program, which doubles the value of federal nutrition benefits they spend there.
AgFirst will continue to support BRWIA through in-kind contributions related to printing and marketing services.
