, our generous supporters helped us raise nearly $3,000 during our first-ever Local Food Heroes campaign. This exceeded our greatest expectations and allowed us to bring our Agriculture Literacy Week programming to over 300 students – that’s 250 more than we expected!
We’re hoping to exceed last year’s amount and raise $4,000 to bring Agriculture Literacy Week to 400 students this year. And our supporter Harry Wils and Company has generously provided a $500 matching grant to get us started!
The cost of bringing the program to one student is $10. With this match, your donation of $10 will become $20 and bring the program to two NYC public school students. To donate, simply visit our donation page at NY Charities – be sure to designate your donation to the Spoons Local Food Heroes Campaign in the blue box so we’ll know where to send it.
Thanks in advance for your support and have a great holiday season!
The Spoons Team
Update 12/12/11: Now with your donation, you’ll be automatically entered to win a dinner at Craftbar!
