Carrboro Farmers' Market FoodShare challenge this Saturday

Help raise 1,000 lbs. of food for the hungry this Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon!

Carrboro Farmers' Market  is challenging locals to shop for their own groceries on Saturday, but also fill a bag of produce for the hungry.  The Food Shuttle's refrigerated trucks will be on site to deliver the fresh local produce to hunger relief agencies.

According to Margaret Gifford, Chapel Hill resident and founder of Farmer FoodShare:

"The farmers have donated over 7,500 pounds of marketable food since late May. Now we are challenging shoppers to follow the farmers' example. Shoppers can buy their groceries at the market and while they are there, donate a bag of food for the hungry."
