From this week’s edition of the Rockport Exchange newsletter:
Feeding Local Families: A Collaborative Effort
Last week we met with representatives of the organizations Awesome Rockport and We Are All in This Together to discuss food insecurity in Rockport, and how to address it with local resources. Both groups have been working hard to meet the needs of local folks who have encountered burdens brought on by COVID-19.
True to these organizations’ track record of getting things done, within 24 hours of our meeting fresh produce from the farmers of the Rockport Farmer Market, along with an array of non-perishable goods, was delivered to four local households in immediate need of assistance by Kristen Michel of We Are in All This Together.
Rockport Exchange looks forward to continuing in this collaborative effort, and appreciates the partnership with Awesome Rockport and We Are All in This Together and the hard-working farmers who bring their fresh produce to the Rockport Farmers Market each week.
