2011 November Photo-of-the-Month (GoodTimes Community Fund Recipient!)

Please join Max (left photo) and Edgar (right) in celebrating some great news!  FoodWhat was selected as one of four Good Times Community Fund honorees!  This year's fund was created to raise awareness of, and support for, local organizations that help youth through offering educational, leadership and career opportunities.

We get this exciting news as the farm is being put to rest for the winter and cover crop sown.  Our Fall Youth Managers have all wrapped up their projects (Flower Business, Gault Farm Stand, Beach Flats CSA, Catering, School Garden BLASTS!, and Fall Harvest Festival) and have completed a full cycle of programming with FoodWhat.  (Many have already started to lobby for their friends to get positions in the Spring Internship.)  There is a collective sense of accomplishment and tons of great stories.

We have the goal to raise $12,500 through the Good Times Community Fund.  Right now, every dollar donated will be matched.  Please Consider a Year-End Donation to Keep FoodWhat Going and Growing in 2012!  Every bit counts--from $10 to $10,000--each contribution will keep us strong and supports local youth!

with gratitude,
Doron, Abby, and the FoodWhat Youth Crew!

(Thank you to the Good Times, the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation for this awesome opportunity.)
