Red Bluff, CA, June 07, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Tehama County Plow Share Project has been awarded the “2015 Tehama County Food Champion” by the Tehama County Food Alliance for it's service to the local school students and community food pantry system.
The Tehama County Plow Share Project began in 2014 and is now an almost four hundred member Facebook Volunteer Group whose mission is to grow, glean and deliver food to the Food Bank and Food Pantry providers in Tehama County. One of the primary ways this is accomplished is through teaming with the local schools to build or restore and then maintain year round their school gardens, with an agreement with the administrations that the food grown goes to feed the children at the schools both in the garden as it is harvested and also, as available, through the school lunch programs. Food grown during times when school is not in session and when extra vegetables and herbs are available is collected and delivered to the Food Bank or Food Pantry with the closest proximity to the local school where it is grown.
People interested in contributing to this worthwhile project, should please “Like” the Tehama County Plow Share Project on Facebook and “Share” the information and requests for resources. Volunteers able and willing to assist with the “hands on” efforts to maintain the local school garden in their area or in any other way, should please send a message through the Facebook page and participation will be welcomed.
