Grants Help Get Fresh Food
Grants awarded to the Appalachian Sustainable Development will allow local people access to fresh foods. A 33-thousand dollar innovation and conservation grant is going to be used for a strip-tilling vegetables initiative. This allows for boosting organic matter into the soil. The group also received a 50-thousand dollar grant from the Newman’s Own Foundation which they will use to further the agency’s goal to increase the consumption of fresh foods in areas identified as food deserts. The grant will be focused on Dickenson, Lee, and Buchanan Counties where it will be used to help the citizens learn how to grow, preserve, and market their own food. (CC)
