Green Commerce Association Hosts ‘Organic’ Holiday Food Drive
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL (November, 2015) –
The Green Commerce Association is sponsoring the first organic food drive in New Port Richey. Folks are asked to contribute certified USDA organic food (cans and boxes only) for distribution to low-income, hungry, and otherwise less fortunate folks in the area. The Green Commerce Association is leading a coalition of ecological and community-sustaining organizations to promote this one-of-a-kind project. This will be a holiday food drive, from November 28 through December 22.
Drop off locations are being developed. Thus far, we are pleased to report locations at Rose’s Bistro Off Main, Sun Toyota, and Wright’s Nutrients. Others will soon follow. We will receive only USDA certified organic food in cans or boxes – no produce or perishables
Joining Green Commerce Association is Friendship Farms & Fare, Nature Coast Real Food Project, Ecology Florida, East Madison Growers, and Volunteer Way. Business supporters are Rose’s Bistro Off Main, Sun Toyota, and Wright’s Nutrients. See our event page for more information!
