Greetings friends & farmers!

Small Farm Central has been invited to attend in the Slow Money Summit at the end of the month and be featured in their Entrepreneur Showcase. With this honor comes the opportunity to win the 'Mamma Chia Entrepreneur of the Year Award'.

If chosen as the winner, Small Farm Central will use $25,000 of the award to create a 'Fresh Food Fund'. The fund would be used to purchase CSA shares from our farmers that will then be delivered to low-income members of our communities and to local food pantries.

You can help us win this award by showing your support and voting for Small Farm Central on Facebook here: http://bit.ly/XVT97v. More importantly, you can show your support by sharing this information with your network of CSA members, and/or mailing list members. We have included some shareable information below and on our online toolkit page, but to make it even easier simply login to your Control Panel and click the link on the homepage to automatically generate an email that you can edit and send to your user groups.

We hope that you will help us in this endeavour to connect farmers to food banks, and to provide fresh, high-quality food to our neighbors in need.
